October 22, 2009--Trinity Consultants announces that Anthony (Tony) Schroeder, senior consultant in Trinity’s Covington, Kentucky office, has earned the nationally recognized Certified Consulting Meteorologist (CCM) designation by the American Meteorological Society (AMS). The CCM designation is issued by AMS to highly qualified meteorologists who provide research and services to a wide variety of users of weather and meteorological information, including business, industry, agriculture, and various sectors of the government. To earn the CCM credential, a meteorologist must meet stringent requirements including peer recommendations, written and oral examinations demonstrating a broad background in meteorology together with detailed knowledge in a particular field of specialization, and demonstration of quality of character and devotion to high professional standards.
At Trinity, Mr. Schroeder applies his meteorological expertise by assisting industrial companies and utilities to comply with air quality regulations. He is experienced in complex air dispersion modeling analyses used to predict the effects of air emissions on surrounding areas. These studies are performed primarily as part of federal and state air permit actions or in litigation cases involving off-site impacts of air pollutant emissions. Prior to joining Trinity in 2003, Mr. Schroeder earned a Bachelor of Science in Meteorology from Ohio State University and a Master of Science in Meteorology from Pennsylvania State University.
According to Paul Smith, manager of Trinity’s Kentucky office, “Our office has the distinction of employing two CCMs, which allows us to effectively serve the meteorological needs of our clients in the Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana region and across the country. We are very proud of Tony’s achievement and are extremely well-equipped to support our clients’ air quality challenges.”
