Mark Bevelhimer

Senior Scientist

Mark has over twenty-five years of experience in aquatic ecology/fisheries biology ranging from basic research to fisheries management to environmental assessment. His recent work focuses on understanding and preventing various environmental impacts associated with power generation by conventional hydropower, hydrokinetic turbines, and thermoelectric plants. He has applied a combination of laboratory and field experimentation with computational analysis to better understand impacts of altered flow regimes, elevated temperatures, contaminant exposure, electromagnetic fields, underwater noise, and turbine injury. He has been lead or co-author on nearly 100 journal articles and reports.
