University of Iowa Professor Jerry Schnoor was designated as the 2021 Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP) Fellow for his environmental research and teaching.
AEESP is a private nonprofit organization made up of professors in academic programs around the world who aim to encourage education in the sciences and technologies of environmental protection. Fellow designation is one of the highest awards given to members.
Schnoor is a professor in civil and environmental engineering whose research focuses on water quality, phytoremediation and climate change. Previously, Schnoor has been internationally recognized for water-quality modeling, environmental health and risk/exposure assessments and climate change.
The recent release of the UN report on climate change should be especially concerning to Iowa, says Schnoor. “Truly we are witnessing a climate crisis, and it requires much faster action toward renewable energy now. Climate action creates jobs, pristine air quality, better health, and a stable system for future generations.”
Schnoor received the award at the organization’s virtual annual meeting on July 14.
