Kelvin Rodolfo is Professor Emeritus with the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago. His graduate training was in marine geology and "sedimentology" - the study of how sedimentary rocks like limestones and sandstones form.

At UIC, Kelvin won 6 UIC awards for excellence in teaching introductory Geology, his specialty subjects, and courses on natural hazards, alternative energy, and climate change. He was involved in plate tectonic theory and deep-sea scientific drilling in the 1970's, then began studying "lahars" (catastrophic debris flows) on Philippine volcanoes.
His Philippine research now focuses on land subsidence around Manila Bay caused by overuse of groundwater, and the resulting worsened rain floods and tidal incursions. Kelvin was deeply involved in successfully opposing a project to activate a mothballed nuclear power plant built on a dormant volcano in an area riddled with active faults.
In the early 1970s, he and his wife Kathy began spending much time unwinding and gardening on 60 acres in Grant County, and became acquainted with the Driftless area and its karstic geology. In 2007 they purchased a few acres in Viroqua township that they farm using permaculture methods. They built a "green", solar-heated home that is powered by solar and wind and provides a surplus to the utility grid.
Kelvin has applied his geologic, environmental and karst expertise to oppose Dairyland's coal-ash dump and CAFOs in Vernon County. He continues to study Driftless karst in a pilot study of Viroqua and surrounding townships. Kelvin lectures on karst in Crawford, Grant and Vernon counties. He is very concerned about potential stream and groundwater pollution by frack-sand mining in the Driftless.
