Tammy Wood is a Scientist Emeritus at the USGS Oregon Water Science Center.


As a Hydrologist at the Oregon Water Science Center I perform applied research in hydrology and water quality that informs management of natural resources in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. My work is varied, encompassing river hydraulics, limnology of lakes and reservoirs, quantifying the availability of water resources, and characterizing the quality of those resources. The themes connecting all my work are the use of state-of-the-art modeling techniques tailored to each problem, and the data collection necessary to properly build and assess performance of those models.
