Florida State University, like most state schools in the US with a storied (American) football program, also has a respectable comp sci department that is not afraid to spend a little cash on a new technology when it comes along. And that's how the Seminoles have ended up being one of the first customers of upstart server maker 3Leaf Systems.
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. Since its inception, series lecturers have reached more than 70,000 national and international groundwater students, faculty members, and professionals
