Mark A Roland

Mark Roland provides water science related to streamflow and flooding in Pennsylvania. 

As a Hydrologic Technician, I was fortunate to work on a variety of projects such as acid-mine drainage, streambank fencing, dam removal, and the Pennsylvania Water Quality Network collecting water-samples, benthic macroinvertebrates and making discharge measurements. 

As a Hydrologist, my work has focused on surface-water and flood studies. I helped develop flood-inundation maps for Pennsylvania communities along the Susquehanna River and periodically update flood-flow statistics at Pennsylvania streamgages. I enjoy field surveying and provide assistance to other projects requiring Global Navigation Satellite Systems and total station data collection.
