Matthew Moser

Matt Moser is a Hydrologist for the U.S. Geological Survey Nebraska Water Science Center in Lincoln, Nebraska.  

I currently work as a Physical Scientist with water quality in the State of Nebraska and have been working with water in Nebraska for the past 18 years. I can assist you in collecting samples or monitoring water. I lead our continuous water quality monitoring network where we operate multi-parameter sondes in surface water.  I design water quality monitoring stations to maximize the quality of data collected, troubleshoot any issue that arise, and approve the data that is collected.  I have been operating water quality sensors for 15 years and have built up an extensive knowledge of how the equipment works and troubleshooting techniques to ensure accurate data. Parameters monitored continuously in the State include water temperature, specific conductance, pH, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, nitrate, chlorophyll, total algae, and others.

I also lead sampling crews here in Nebraska that sample for a variety of analytes. These include nutrients, major ions, bacteria, eDNA, pesticides, noenicitinoids, sediment, and various other analytes. While I primarily sample surface water, I have also sampled groundwater in the past. The surface water sites can be sampled via wading, off a bridge, or by boat.
