Mr. Emsbo-Mattingly is an environmental chemist who specializes in the diagnostic measurement of petroleum, tar, combustion byproducts, preservatives, solvents, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), heavy metals, and anthropogenic contaminants in solid, liquid, gas, and biological matrices. He offers extensive experience in oil spills, manufactured gas plants, chemical plants, wood treating facilities, tar and petroleum refineries, petroleum storage facilities, chlorinated solvent industries, chemical manufacturing facilities, and urban background. Over his more than 30 years in the environmental industry, Mr. Emsbo-Mattingly helped pioneer forensic methods for the identification and delineation of oil spills, tar releases, solvent plumes, PCB impacts, vapor intrusion, heavy metals, technologically enhanced naturally occurring radioactive matter (TENORM), and anthropogenic particulates. These projects often include detailed reviews of historical field and laboratory data, data quality assessment, statistical trend analysis, and plume deconvolution for site assessment, contaminant recovery, and liability management. He has published more than 100 articles, guidance documents, and textbook chapters and serves as reviewer for multiple journals and textbooks.
