Biography

Will Harmon joined the USGS in 2015 as a Pathways Program - Hydrologic Technician Trainee. After receiving his M.S. of Geology from the University of Arkansas in 2018, he joined the USGS Lower Mississippi-Gulf Water Science Center full-time as a Hydrologic Technician. His work at the USGS involves routine streamgaging, measurement of streamflow using acoustic doppler velocimeters (ADVs) and acoustic doppler current profilers (ADCPs) during routine and flood conditions, and maintenance of equipment involved in the gathering of water resource data and its transmission to the GOES satellite array.
