New: Special presentation — Darcy Revisited

Join three former NGWREF Darcy Lecturers as they address the advances made within their topic areas since their official Darcy Lecturer year.


Mary C. Hill, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Geology at the University of Kansas, will provide updates on her 2001 Darcy Lecture, “Guidelines for Effective Model Calibration (Any Model!),” which focused on how nonlinear regression and associated statistics can be used to dramatically improve how data are used to calibrate and text models.

Kip Solomon, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Geology & Geophysics in the University of Utah’s College of Mines and Earth Sciences, will provide updates on his 2005 Darcy presentation, “Inert Gas Tracers in Ground Water” that illustrated the basic concepts of using inert gas tracers along with case studies describing their applications to real-world groundwater flow problems.

Michael Celia. Ph.D., director of the Program in Environmental Engineering and Water Resources in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department at Princeton University, as well as a professor, will provide updates on his 2008 Darcy Lecture, “Geological Storage as a Carbon Mitigation Option,” which talked about carbon capture and storage, or CSS, as one approach to reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide.
