- Author BiographyRonald C. Chaney is emeritus professor of environmental resources engineering, former director of the Telonicher Marine Laboratory, and head of vessel operations at Humboldt State University in Arcata, California. Prior to that, he was an associate professor of civil engineering at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He received his PhD in engineering from the University of California-Los Angeles in 1978. In addition, Dr. Chaney was the editor of the International Journal of Marine Geotechnology, Journal of Marine Georesources and Geotechnology, and the American Society for Testing and Materials's Geotechnical Testing Journal. He is a fellow of both ASCE and ASTM. Gideon Almagor is an emeritus senior geologist from the Geological Survey of Israel, specializing in coastal and marine geology, and geotechnology. He is currently affiliated with AdaMa Environmental and Geological Sciences as a geologist. He received his PhD from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1977. He has extensive experience in shipboard operations (geophysical, coring) and laboratory testing.
