Mark R Nardi

Mark Nardi is a Supervisory Geographer at the USGS MD-DE-DC Water Science Center.

I’m interested in many things related to geospatial and temporal analysis, especially as those topics relate to water quality and quantity.  My work has been mostly focused on water issues but also incudes using lidar to identify and map phragmites as well as lidar application to runway obstructions.  Other past work includes authorship of computer a program to calculate stream metabolism parameters from continuous water quality data.  More recent science work has included using a soil water balance model to estimate potential shallow groundwater recharge in support of regional groundwater flow models and field scale nutrient transport studies.  I’m also an Associate Director of the MD-DE-DC Water Science Center and manage the Delaware Office.
