Natalie Schmer

Natalie Schmer is a Hydrologist with the Pennsylvania Water Science Center.

Her current work focuses on surface water quality, using both discrete and continuous water-quality measurements along with surrogate regression modeling to estimate concentrations and loads for several different water quality constituents including suspended sediment, total nitrogen, and total phosphorus. She is also interested in a variety of other topics such as aquatic ecosystem ecology (specifically river metabolism), data visualization, and science communication.


Current Projects

  • Surrogate regression modeling for sediment and nutrient concentration and loads in sub-basins of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed
  • Analyzing nutrient and sediment dynamics in the lower Susquehanna watershed
  • Surface and ground water sampling
