Robin Miller has been the lead research scientist on the Twitchell Island pilot project for the past 10 years.
The Science Team
The USGS leads the Carbon Capture Farming research team that consists of experts at the University of California at Davis as well as other university researchers and consultants. The team is made up of interdisciplinary researchers with a range of expertise, backed up by professional field technicians working in close collaboration with site engineers. Planned products include a series of technical reports and a “handbook” on how and where to build and maintain successful carbon-capture farms.
