in analyzing real properties involved in proposed environmental class actions,
such as the ones listed above. RPA analysts are experienced at the
evaluation of complex econometric and statistical models used, or proposed for

RPA researchers have contributed to the literature on the methods,
techniques and standards for analyzing impacts on value and estimating property
value diminution due to environmental contamination and other potentially
adverse influences (see Selected Publications,
below). In addition, as a former member of the
Appraisal Standards Board of The Appraisal Foundation and later the Professional
Standards and Guidance Committee of the Appraisal Institute, Dr. Jackson was the principal author of two
authoritative guidance documents on professional standards applicable to the appraisal of
properties that may be impacted by
environmental contamination (see GN-6 and AO-9, below).
