Jeremy Carlston, a member of the RTI Center for Water Resources, specializes in hydrologic and hydraulic modeling and calibration. With an academic background in fluid mechanics and hydraulic engineering, Mr. Carlston supports projects that help clients around the U.S. and the world calibrate and implement models and institute best practices for water resources management.
Currently, Mr. Carlston contributes to our work for the Panama Canal Authority, updating and maintaining the FEWS forecast system and providing ongoing technical support. He is also recalibrating hydrologic models for 139 sub-basins in the Tennessee Valley Authority using a hybrid manual/automatic approach. For the Chesapeake Bay Trust, he is analyzing HSPF model outputs to create a framework for determining the sensitivity of the HSPF model to implementation of best management practices—part of an effort to estimate the economic benefits of flood reduction.
Mr. Carlston joined RTI in 2017. Previously, he was a water resources engineer at WBCM, where he designed and inspected best-management practices for TMDL compliance in the Chesapeake Bay region. He is a licensed professional engineer in Colorado, a skilled Python and MATLAB programmer, and experienced with Linux, NWS and HEC models, and CHPS-FEWS. He is proficient in Spanish.
