Mark Graves was recently named the new chief of the Environmental Systems Branch in the Environmental Laboratory (EL) at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) in Vicksburg.

Graves has a bachelor’s in geology from Hanover College, where he graduated magna cum laude with departmental honors, and a master’s in physical geography from Murray State University. Following his graduate work, he joined EL as a research physical scientist, concentrating on the application of remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS) technologies for a wide variety of civil and military applications.

During his time at EL, Graves has served as an agency and government-wide advocate of the use of geospatial technologies and has been heavily involved in the development of agency and federal standards involving geographic data and information exchange standards. In 1993, he served an eight-month term as assistant to the director of the Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program in Washington, D.C., and more recently served as the team leader of EL’s Geospatial Data Analysis Facility.
