Mr. Parsons specializes in the management, review, analysis, and presentation of environmental and spatial data using GIS, imagery, and data management technologies. During his more than 15 years at NewFields, he has designed databases and constructed GIS projects supporting dozens of forensic analyses and reports investigating the fate and transport over time of environmental pollutants. These investigations have focused on chemicals of concern such as polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), heavy metals, dioxins, herbicides, pesticides, chlorinated solvents, and radiological isotopes in solid, liquid and gas matrices. Mr. Parsons came to NewFields in 2007 after nearly 20 years of work experience in information technology, business consulting, and environmental science with particular interest and emphasis on water resource management and policy, hydrology, and hydrogeology.
