Kurt McCoy has been employed as a hydrologist with the US Geological Survey since 2002. Kurt has worked on aquifer studies in a number of states including West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Wyoming, New Mexico, and Virginia.
My group focuses on facilitating and communicating science to inform coastal communities facing flooding risks from sea-level rise and assisting rural communities with water resource availability needs. I actively encourage participation in collaborative teams with a wide range of scientists, and specifically look for or seek to build collaborative opportunities for my team members to advance their respective interests. Some recent examples include subsidence monitoring in the Chesapeake Bay to support ecological modeling of marsh habitat, seismic modeling of waste water injection, induced PFAS transport from surface water sources, and UAS monitoring of ecological change in coastal environments.
