Mark Zucker

Mark Zucker is a Supervisory Physical Scientist for the U.S. Geological Survey Caribbean-Florida Water Science Center located in Davie Florida. 

Mark began his career as a Hydrologic Technician working on the Georgia-Florida National Water Quality Assessment Program (NAWQA) in the Tallahassee District Office in 1995 and then supported with the South Florida NAWQA Program in the Miami Subdistrict Office from 1996 to 2001. In 1998, Mark was recruited to the Studies Section to assist with collection and analysis data from the Freshwater Flow to Florida Bay Project in Everglades National Park (ENP). The project was funded by the USGS Placed Based Science Program (now known as the Greater Everglades Priority Ecosystem Science Program link). Acoustic Doppler current profilers were used measure discharge in coastal creeks. The index-velocity method was used to develop ratings to quantify freshwater runoff to the Florida Bay. In 2003, Mark earned a master’s degree in environmental studies at Florida International University and served as a principal investigator on several coastal monitoring projects such as the Freshwater Flows to Florida Bay, Hydrologic Monitoring in Joe Bay, and Sediment Transport on Cape Sable, ENP (2003-2013). In 2013, he became a supervisor in the Networks Section in the Caribbean-Florida Water Science Center Davie office. Mark’s interests range from water quality continuous water monitors, hydroacoustic, sediment, hydrology of coastal and tidal rivers, data management and publication, and the management of human capital.
