Rutgers professor named to Endowed Chair for Water Resources and Watershed Ecology

January 20, 2016

The Endowed Johnson Family Chair for Water Resources and Watershed Ecology is a newly endowed chair position created to help restore the Raritan River watershed and further help students learn about environmental issues, said Robert Goodman, executive dean of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

Richard Lathrop, a professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Natural Resources and director of the Grant F. Walton Center for Remote Sensing & Spatial Analysis, will become the first faculty member to hold this position.

He will be working with the Sustainable Raritan River Initiative, he said. The program is a joint venture with the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and the Edward J. Bloustein School for Planning and Public Policy.
