John specializes in coastal and fluvial hydrology. He collects and analyzes streamflow, hydrologic, and water quality data. He is experienced in technical data acquisition and has led multiple geomorphic, water quality, and biologic monitoring projects. He has a background in riverine ecology and has provided field assistance in salmonid life-cycle monitoring and anadromous fisheries management studies. For his master’s thesis, he assessed the significance of physical habitat characteristics in describing macroinvertebrate assemblage structure in a small coastal stream to better understand the potential for riparian management to enhance lotic ecosystem function. Mr. Hardy is experienced in advanced surveying and remote-sensing using multiple GIS platforms and is skilled in creating high-quality custom graphics.
