Interests and Expertise
Dan Myers is a geographer interested in studying the influence of land use and climate change trends on rivers and streams. Common approaches he uses include hydrological models, water quality/quantity analyses, and community-engaged watershed management. As a postdoctoral associate in the Watershed Biogeochemistry Group, Dan is working with the National Park Service to evaluate stream monitoring protocol and analyze trends in watershed health in the National Capital Region. He hopes to improve the world by providing scientific analyses to make better decisions about freshwater management. Learn more about Dan.
