Jamie Shanley is a research hydrologist and biogeochemist with the United States Geological Survey (USGS), an organization within the U.S. Department of Interior that is probably best known for topographic mapping and stream gaging and water quality monitoring and research.

At the Montpelier, Vermont USGS field office, Jamie studies atmospheric inputs of chemicals, including those associated with acid rain, and traces how they move through and out of Northern Forest ecosystems in stream water. His work focuses principally on the pollutants nitrogen, sulfur, and mercury.
