Biography

Joanne Duncan is an essential collaborator to the development and operation of the “Sensor Fish”, a sensor package designed to measure the conditions experienced by juvenile salmonids passing through hydropower projects. She has been actively involved in NEPA documentation and reporting, contributing to Environmental Impact Statements and acting as primary editor to the Hanford Site National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Characterization Report. She is the production coordinator for the Hanford Site Annual Environmental Report and has been an active contributor to hydroacoustic evaluations, technical writing, database input and analyses, data processing, and water quality and analysis studies.
