Al Larson is a licensed professional geologist (in New Hampshire) who worked for 30 years as a consultant in the environmental services industry in the western and northeastern regions of the United States. During his professional career, he worked on a broad range of environmental projects ranging from the permitting of a platinum/palladium mine in Montana to the investigation of a SUPERFUND site in New Hampshire. At UNH Manchester he instructs three Earth Science classes: Dynamic Earth (ESCI 401), Geology and the Environment (ESCI 409) and Earth Hazards (ESCI 410). The goal of each of these courses is to broaden students understanding of geology and how it affects their lives and to share his experiences working in the geologic sciences.
