Rosenberry, Donald

Donald Rosenberry, Ph.D., is a research hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Research Program specializing in wetland hydrology, water budgets of lakes and wetlands, and hyporheic processes. His research is focused on the sediment/water interface with an emphasis on understanding processes that control exchanges between groundwater and surface water. He is also the coordinator of the Shingobee Headwaters Aquatic Ecosystem Project in which scientists from the USGS and academia work together to study physical, chemical, and biological processes of lakes, wetlands, and streams at a small-watershed scale. Rosenberry’s interests in groundwater, surface water, and the dynamic sediment/water interface stem from his formative years at Bemidji State University located on the shore of one of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes, the University of Minnesota located on the banks of the Mississippi River, and the University of Colorado through which Boulder Creek flows.
