Eliza L. Gross

Eliza is the National Map Liaison for New York and Pennsylvania.

As a National Map Liaison with the National Geospatial Program's (NGP) User Engagement Office, I provide outreach and coordination of geospatial activities in support of NGP initiatives and USGS science. I began my USGS career as a graduate student intern with the Pennsylvania Water Science Center providing mapping and spatial data analysis support for several National Water Quality Assessment projects. I also served as project chief for studies characterizing the occurrence of arsenic and radon in groundwater using geospatial and statistical analyses and for a study assessing the prevalence of pesticides and nutrients in groundwater through sampling of domestic wells in agricultural areas.
