RESEARCH AND CONSULTING EXPERIENCE 1991 - present Co-Director of the Western Maryland Regional Geographic Information Center. 1986 - 1996 Stream Model: Developed and applied a stream water quality computer model (DSSAM, Dynamic Stream Simulation). The model includes two species of benthic algae, pH, DO, BOD, and nitrogen. Model applied to Truckee River, presented results at three workshops in Carson City, Nevada (1989, 1990 and 1994). Model development continues at present. 1991 - 1993 Stream Model application to Red Deer River, Alberta, Canada. Temperature submodel added to water quality model. 1991 Reviewed Water Quality Models and Rate Coefficients for use on the Souris River. Presented a survey of existing water quality models and chaired issue session at The Souris River Basin Modeling Workshop, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. 1990 - 1991 Organized 3 day non-tidal wetlands workshop at Frostburg State University, instructor for hydrology and field portions of workshop. 1989 - 1991 Developed and applied shade and temperature model for Truckee River, Nevada. 1990 Grant from Maryland Bureau of Mines for preparation of sections of a mine reclamation plan. Examined approaches that would maintain and enhance wetland habits. 1989 Two weeks at Utah State University developing user interface for PC-based version of Cost Allocation Model for Senegal Project 1989 One week workshop on temperature and eutrophication modelling, presented at Utah State University. 1988-1989 Water Quality Study of the Impacts of Waste Water Treatment Plants on the Yellow River, Gwinnett, County, Ga. 1985-1987 Land Treatment of Hazardous Wastes: Researched, developed, and applied a computer model for evaluating the leachate potential at land treatment sites for the EPA. 1986-1987 Bear River Phosphate Control Study: Collected and analyzed data to identify sources of phosphorus in the Bear River watershed. 1984-1986 River Basin Water Quality Management Study: Modified and applied a stream model to study the eutrophication potential of proposed Bear River reservoirs. 1982-1986 Senegal River Basin Development Project: Developed a cost allocation computer model, instructed trainees from West Africa on the use of the model, installed computer equipment in Dakar, and presented material at three workshops in Dakar, West Africa. 1986 Virgin River Instream Flow Study: collected data, and applied computer model to determine flow requirements for endangered fish species. 1984 Assisted in field studies for a site suitability study for a proposed environmental educational facility in Professor Valley, Utah. 1984 Developed a new computerized temperature model for Bio-West Inc. Logan, Utah 1983 Reservoir Impact and Management Study: Modified and applied a reservoir temperature model, for Bio-West Inc. Logan, Utah. 1982 Reservoir Impact and Management Study: Developed and applied a reservoir temperature model, Twelve-Nine consulting firm, Logan, UT. 1981 Computer Program Evaluation: Made necessary changes for running the HEC-5Q computer model on the Va computer. Evaluated the water quality section of the model. 1980 Stream Temperature Model: Developed and applied a stream temperature model to a dam in New Mexico (U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service), to a proposed hydroelectric diversion project (CH2M-Hill, Boise, ID), and to the proposed White River Dam (Bio-West Inc., Logan, Utah). 1979 Water Quality Indices: Evaluated the water quality indices linked to a stream simulation model for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Instream Flow Group, Fort Collins, Colorado. 1978-1979 Impacts of Strip mining: Toured strip mines in the Midwest collecting aquatic and terrestrial data for Indiana University. 1977 Environmental Impact Assessment: Prepared the terrestrial ecology section of the EIA for a proposed recreation facility (Indiana Univ.).Back to Craig Caupp's Home Page.
