About

Erik Smith has been with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) since 2004. During the early USGS tenure, he worked as a supporting scientist on the NAWQA program's Agricultural Chemicals Transport (ACT) team, handling management of an extensive groundwater monitoring network, groundwater and surface water sampling, and instrumentation of an in-field subsurface drainage monitoring site. In 2008, he transferred to Minnesota to pursue Ph.D. research on the spatial and temporal variability of preferential flow in a subsurface-drained agricultural field. Since completing a Ph.D., Erik Smith has focused on CE-QUAL-W2 modeling of Minnesota lakes, SWB modeling to estimate recharge across Minnesota, and groundwater sustainability issues.
