We are proud to announce that this year's Darcy Lecturer, Prof. Ty Ferre, will make a stop in Stuttgart to present his award-winning Darcy Lecture. Save the date: 10th of November 2016 in room 57.02, 9:45-11:15.
Ty Ferré, Ph.D., professor in the University of Arizona’s Department of Hydrology and Water Resources, has been selected as the 2016 Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecturer by the National Ground Water Research and Educational Foundation.
Ferré’s lecture, “Seeing Things Differently: Rethinking the Relationship between Data and Models,” explores how the practice of hydrology depends on computer models while at the same time new methods have been adapted or developed for characterizing and monitoring the subsurface.
What is the Darcy Lecture? Named in honor of Henry Darcy of France for his 1856 investigations that established the physical basis upon which groundwater hydrogeology has been studied ever since, this lecture is awarded each year to an outstanding scientist in the area of groundwater. Darcy Lecturers then travel across the globe to present their lecture. The Darcy lecture series has reached more than 85,000 groundwater students, faculty members, and professionals since its inception in 1986.
