Lawrence Lemke, chair of Central Michigan University’s Department of
Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, is among Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder’s initial appointments to the state
Environmental Science Advisory Board.
The nine-member board was created to advise the governor on issues affecting the protection of the environment and the management of the state’s natural resources.
“Each individual has a unique set of skills to ensure Michigan’s natural resources and environment are preserved and protected,” Snyder said.
Lemke’s current research encompasses groundwater pollution, air pollution and soil contamination.
His term runs to Oct. 4, 2020.
