The November 15, 2004, issue of the American Chemical Society journal Environmental Science & Technology honors Dr. Walter J. Weber, Jr, Distinguished University Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Michigan. Dr. Weber has been a faculty member at the University for more than 40 years and is director of the Concentrations in Environmental Sustainability (ConsEnSus) program there. He has been a Principal Investigator in the Environmental Management Science Program since its inception in 1996, with his current research in this program focused on engineered natural geosorbents for immobilizing environmental contaminants. The journal features a photograph of Dr. Weber on the cover, an article "Walter J. Weber, Jr.'s Unique Legacy," and a dozen research papers by his present and former students. The article is available at http://pubs.acs.org/subscribe/journals/esthag-a/38/i22/pdf/111504feature_petkewich.pdf
