This year’s conference will focus on reclamation practices, technology, and monitoring that can be used to improve reclamation success.
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Thomas DeSutter presenting “Current and Potential Remediation Strategies for Brine Spills”
Dr. DeSutter received his BS and MS degrees from South Dakota State University (Brookings, SD) in 1994 and 1998, respectively, and his PhD from Kansas State University (Manhattan, KS). After completing a Post-Doc with the USDA-ARS (Ames, IA) he was hired in 2006 as an Environmental Soil Scientist by the Department of Soil Science at North Dakota State University (Fargo, ND). His research interests are saline and sodic soils, reclamation of energy-extraction impacted soils, distribution of mercury and other trace metals in surface and subsurface soils, phosphorus losses from freeze-thaw systems, and instrumentation for measuring soil physical and biological parameters. DeSutter teaches Soil and Land Use and Environmental Field Instrumentation and Sampling.
