Dr. Charles T. Driscoll is a Distinguished Professor at Syracuse University. Dr. Driscoll received his B.S. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Maine in 1974, and his M.S. in 1976 and Ph.D. in 1980 in Environmental Engineering from Cornell University. Dr. Driscoll's teaching and research interests are in the areas of environmental engineering, environmental chemistry, biogeochemistry, soil chemistry and environmental quality modeling. Dr. Driscoll's principal contribution has been long-term research assessing effects of air pollution controls on ecosystems. His research characterizes and quantifies the mechanisms by which acidic deposition (acid rain) acidifies soil and surface waters and the impacts of this disturbance on ecosystem structure and function. Dr. Driscoll also works with regional and federal natural resource managers on the air pollution effects on ecosystems. He has provided expert testimony to U.S. Congressional and State committees, and served on National Research Council and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency committees on air pollution effects on ecosystems.
