Lynn H. Teuscher
M.S. Mechanical Engineering
B.S. Mechanical Engineering
Mr. Teuscher has been involved in theoretical and experimental aspects of pollutant transport and dispersion in the environment for over 25 years. During this time he has been involved with regulatory air quality models, the development of proprietary dispersion models, and the proper management of extremely hazardous materials. As a senior technical advisor in the Risk Management Group, he is responsible for project management, project planning and technical review, and advising staff members. Mr Teuscher has:
- Worked extensively in modeling the dispersion of extremely hazardous materials in the atmosphere, including hydrocarbons, chlorine, ammonia, and hydrogen and is familiar with many of the public domain dispersion models.
- Assisted the development of new advanced models for dense cloud dispersion.
- Served on a Chlorine Safety Manual Task Force for the Water Environment Federation.
- Extensive background in Risk Management and Off-site Consequence analysis associated with hazards and toxic chemicals, which has included numerous HAZOP's serving as both Team Leader and Quality Control director.
- Participated in over 200 risk management studies during the past 5 years.
- Extensive experience in the development and application of tracer technology to measure dispersion and transport of pollutants in the environment.
- Played an active role in the development of pollutant detection systems for tracer applications in the atmosphere, groundwater, surface reservoirs, and process streams.
- Served as program manager on one of the larger studies using tracer data to validate a regulatory dispersion model that was sponsored by EPRI to examine the accuracy of flat terrain EPA models.
- Fulfilled a leadership capacity in the conduct of a large tracer study to measure the impact of a coal fired power plant on the Grand Canyon.
Prior to joining Tracer, Mr. Teuscher was Chief Scientist of the La Jolla, California office of Energy Resources Company, Inc. He provided technical review and consulting on all projects conducted by that office. These projects covered the broad areas of air quality impact assessment, dispersion of dense gases in the atmosphere, risk and hazard studies, and tracer studies. Mr. Teuscher lead a program to develop numerical models to predict the consequences associated with the loss of hydrocarbon product from storage tanks and pipelines. These models predicted gaseous dispersion in the atmosphere, overpressurization associated with exploding gaseous clouds, and radiation fluxes associated with burning clouds, jets and pool fires. The models have been extensively used in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East in the development of risk analyses and in the investigation of accidents.
