He is a retired Professional Researcher (Level VII) in the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management at the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) and Past Director of the Vadose Zone Monitoring Laboratory at UCSB. The University of California describes full professor Level VII as “reserved for scholars of great distinction.”

Dr. Everett is an internationally recognized expert who has conducted extensive research on Subsurface Characterization and Remediation. He is Chairman of the ASTM Task Committee on Groundwater and Vadose Zone Monitoring. He also chaired the Remediation Session of the First USSR/USA Conference on Environmental Hydrogeology (Leningrad, 1990).

Dr. Everett has received numerous awards, published over 150 technical papers and reports, holds several patents, developed 11 national ASTM Vadose Zone Monitoring standards and authored and edited over 10 books including: Vadose Zone Monitoring for Hazardous Waste Sites, and Subsurface Migration of Hazardous Waste. His book entitled, Groundwater Monitoring was endorsed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as establishing “the state-of-the-art used by industry today” and was recommended by the World Health Organization for all developing countries.

    The book covers subsurface water exchange between the land and sea as well as groundwater discharge to the seas. It also provides a review of experimental methods and numerical modeling that can be used for the evaluation of specific discharge data and the effect of groundwater on the salt balance of seas and oceans.

    This publication provides an international perspective on one of the most complex issues in hydrology: field and laboratory measurement of low permeability and dual porosity materials. Eleven peer-reviewed papers, written by an international group of experts, focus on the development of techniques to evaluate hydraulic conductivity and remediation of fine grained and dual porosity geologic materials.
