Dr. Bruce M. Thomson
Regents Professor of Civil
Engineering at the University of NewMexico.
Dr. Thomson has a B.S.
in Civil Engineering from the University of California, Davis, CA, and
M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Environmental Science and Engineering from
University, Houston, TX. He has been at the University of New Mexico
Dr. Thomson teaches a wide range of courses in environmental
at the senior and graduate level including physical~chemical water
biol4gical wastewater treatment, aquatic chemistry, groundwater and
transport modeling, and radioactive waste management. Much of this
has also been presented in nationally acclaimed short courses. His
interests focus on the chemical behavior and treatment of radioactive
inorganic water contaminants in both surface and ground water systems.
Current projects include work on remediation of contamination from
mining and milling activities, development of tensiometric or dry
to prevent contaminant migration through the vadose zone, and
of groundwater contamination from on-site wastewater disposal systems.
Thomson has consulted nationally and internationally on management of
wastes from the mining industry, radioactive and mixed wastes, and
