Tim Scheibe, 2010 Darcy Lecturer, visits DSC

Timothy Scheibe, the 2010 Darcy Lecturer, presented the talk, “Quantifying Flow and Reactive Transport in the Heterogeneous Subsurface Environment: From Pores to Porous Media and Facies to Aquifers” as the 2010 Darcy Lecturer on Thursday, January 7, 2009 at 499 Dirac Science Library.  Dr. Scheibe is the first person from the national laboratories of the Department of Energy to be named Darcy Lecturer. The Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecture Series in Ground Water Science was established in 1986 to foster interest and excellence in groundwater science and technology. The award honors and is named for Henry Darcy of France for his 1856 scientific discoveries which established the physical basis on which groundwater hydrogeology has been studied since that time.
