 John Tatarko - Soil Scientist

 

John is the lead scientist responsible for wind erosion research that focuses on wind erosion simulation modeling and control.  He conducts research into fundamental soil physical properties and processes affecting erosion by wind including overwintering effects on tillage induced soil physical properties.  He also specializes in the transfer of wind erosion technology to customers.
