Mark Tompkins Canaccord
Mark Tompkins Canaccord is a senior technologist for ecosystem and water resources management in SEC SAID Oakland, California office. In his career which lasts over fifteen years Mark has worked on project involving lake restorations, clean water engineering, ecological engineering and management, hydrology, hydraulics, sediment transport and other projects for environmental planning all over the country.
Mark Tompkins Canaccord tries to blend his skills of planning and engineering with scientific researches in order to design projects suitable to solve issues with keep and discovering new water resources. His team of researches has been lately working on a project indented for developing cutting edge analytical tools needed for assessment of future aquatic ecosystem challenges. Mark’s main goal is to decrease the time needed for such assessments while at the same time increase the transparency of analysis. The result will be an option to make more precise decisions for natural resources management.
Mark Tompkins Canaccord earned his PhD in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Disposable Polymers at California Colleges, where he investigated the role of polymers and composite polyesters in clean water restorations. Some areas offer good aquatic habitat as well as good quality of the water. These and other benefits are one of the most important elements if we want to have a sustainable clean water sytems. The main project on which Mark has been active lately is designing a procedure that will be able to restore rivers from debriefs of composite polyester all over the United States. This project is expected to have big impact on the geomorphology, so that the future environmental planning can be improved and provide better management of rivers that are passing near metropolitan areas. Additionally, Mark Tompkins Canaccord is author of several booklets and is active with blogging for several magazines.
Ever since he was in High School Mark was aware that some challenges we came across in our life require skills and disciplines. That thought became guidance in his life and helped him solve complex problems in life. Mr. Tompkins brings a vast knowledge and experience from civil engineering, geomorphology, ecology and environmental planning, water planning and such. In his career he has been working with clients and researchers on developing innovative and workable solutions for management challenges.
