About the Contributor
Mr. Gunther Rosen is an Aquatic Biologist with the Naval Information Warfare Center (NIWC) Pacific in San Diego, California. His primary research interests are in aquatic and sediment ecotoxicology. For the past 20+ years, Gunther has conducted basic and applied research for the Navy primarily in support of improved characterization and management of contaminated discharges and sediments. His research focuses on understanding the bioavailability and toxicity of DoD-relevant contaminants on marine biota, and the development, or demonstration and validation, of technologies to improve environmental quality assessment. He oversees projects across a wide range of related topics including metal and organic contaminant availability, stormwater impacts, in situ site characterization and remediation, and emerging contaminants including those associated with underwater munitions. Mr. Rosen received a Bachelor's degree in Aquatic Biology from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1993 and a Master's degree in Aquaculture from Oregon State University in 1998.
