Professor Andrew Rosenberg of the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space (EOS) and department of natural resources and the environment has been asked to serve as an advisor for the remainder of this year to the President’s Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) on ocean policy and marine spatial planning.
During the next 90 days the CEQ, working with an interagency ocean policy task force, has been directed by President Barack Obama to develop a framework for effective coastal and marine spatial planning using a comprehensive ecosystem-based approach.
Prior to coming to UNH in 2000, Rosenberg was a senior official at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and from 2001-2004 served on the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy. Under this new appointment, he will continue teaching and conducting research work in EOS and the department of natural resources and the environment but will spend up to 20 percent of his time advising the CEQ.
