Outstanding Service Award 2002
Project Award

Tom Hollenhorst

Tom Hollenhorst is the Coordinator for the Center for Water and the Environment at the Natural Resources Research Institute. The Center was awarded a $6M grant from the Environmental Protection Agency to develop a suite of environmental indicators for the coastal areas of the entire US Great Lakes region. It is the largest research grant ever awarded to UMD. This project is being led by 27 investigators from 8 different academic and Federal institutions. Tom coordinated the efforts of a Geographic Information System (GIS) team and database specialists in assembling all of the spatial data encompassing the Great Lakes Basin, along with data from a myriad of other databases from sources such as the EPA, US Army Corps of Engineers, and individual states. Tom's efforts have contributed enormously to our knowledge base on the natural resources of Minnesota and the Great Lakes.

Tom has been a central figure in the use of GIS to develop creative solutions for addressing environmental resource questions and is truly deserving of this Outstanding Service award.
