Environmental preservation

I just went through this...really all the points which came to my mind are covered by you. No more additions are needed. If you bring this to practise, it will sound good.

Barry's Response - Air quality modelling. It's what I do for a living. If you think it's interesting, maybe you could pursue it as a career for yourself. Take physics, meteorology or engineering in university, supplement it with some interdisciplinary studies or environmental sciences and that well-rounded education should help prepare you for a long and interesting career in environmental preservation. Good Luck and Thank You, Srikirthiga.

When it comes to find clients and jobs, here are some things to consider including on your resume:
  • Basic academic background e.g., physics, environmental sciences etc.
  • Air pollution meteorology
  • Models studied and used, such as AERMOD, CALPUFF, ISC and CAL3QHC
  • Prior professional environments including technical and peer review scenarios
  • Additional software development and/or customization
  • Hearings and Expert testimony
  • Preparation and evaluation of meteorological data sets
  • One-on-one consulting, technical advice and client service
  • Regulatory and legal consulting
  • International work
  • Professional associations - certifications, activities and memberships
  • Ongoing research and education

Career path example

Air quality specialists sometimes lead client corporation air programs. A person with previous management experience and business success, technical skills such as air pollution control device design, permitting, project management and emission calculations may look to move into this type of position. Experience serving other projects in the client's industry helps greatly. In Alberta, for instance, experience in the power, oil and gas industry is a huge asset.

Bottom line: Find your own path.
