Tara L Root, PhD

I have worked on a wide range of projects addressing problems related to surface water-groundwater interaction, nutrient transport, saltwater intrusion, and naturally occurring arsenic contamination.  Prior to joining the USGS, I had 15 years of experience in academia, where I taught hydrogeology and water resources courses, supervised student research, and managed a water analysis lab.
