a member of the EPA Science Advisory Board and committees dealing with indoor air pollution and with particulate air pollution.

THOMAS TENFORDE is a chief scientist in the Environmental Technology Division at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. He received his B.A. in physics with honors from Harvard University and his Ph.D. in biophysics from the University of California at Berkeley. He was a biomedical researcher and senior scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory from 1969–1987, following which he assumed his current position. He was President of the Bioelectromagnetics Society in 1987–1988, and is currently the Scientific Vice President for Nonionizing Radiation of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements. He is also a member of the International Nonionizing Radiation Protection Commission and the Physical Agents Committee of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. In 1991–1992 he served as Chairman of the National Research Council's committee on Assessment of the Possible Health Effects of the Ground Wave Emergency Network.
