Service Description

I am interested in providing information, in the plainest English possible without losing validity, about general and environmental chemistry, radiochemistry, water quality, drinking-water safety, and geochemistry.

I also have published journal articles on the attenuation (loss with depth) of light in water and the behavior of light at the water's surface. I solved the riddle of why radium-226 occurred in higher concentrations in Sarasota County, Florida, than in the phosphate mining areas of Florida.

I prefer to properly research my information and not to write quick, off-the-cuff articles.

I am trying to start a small business after retiring from the U.S. Geological Survey's Water Resources Discipline. I want to use my experience to make science interesting and understandable to a broad audience.

I have an interest in languages and can read and translate some German but I am not fluent yet.
