Kenneth D Skinner

Kenneth Skinner is a hydrologist with the USGS Idaho Water Science Center in Boise, Idaho.

Kenneth’s current research focuses on nutrients in groundwater and surface water. Specifically, he evaluates nutrient trends in groundwater and point-source nutrient loads in streams. Kenneth also develops surrogate models to determine continuous real-time nutrient concentrations in springs to aid in managing endangered and threatened species. Other research includes groundwater source-water assessments for public supply drinking water systems and modeling water use by thermoelectric power plants.
