Short Biography

Eric Scherff joined the U.S. Geological Survey in 2007 with the New Mexico Water Science Center, and has been a hydrologist at the Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center in Jamestown, North Dakota since 2011.  His work focuses on how hydrology affects ecosystem structure and function.  Current projects use physically-based, continuous models that link GIS, dynamic simulation, and hydrologic modeling platforms to output spatially explicit results.  Calibration and validation are being done at the basin scale for sites in the Prairie Pothole Region.  Regional models are also being developed to assess how these processes interact with changing climate, land use, and management scenarios to influence delivery of ecosystem services in the Prairie Pothole and High Plains regions.
