In this presentation, Dave analyzes long-term records of groundwater levels in the Northeastern United States, to decipher regional-scale groundwater – surface water interactions. The rich dataset contains a story of large droughts, climate connections, and significant changes in groundwater storage. David is an associate professor of Hydrogeology in the Department of Geosciences at the University […]
Jim discusses remediation technologies that target source zones containing Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids (NAPLs), such as solvents and hydrocarbons. He makes the point that even under highly controlled research conditions, it is unrealistic to expect complete source removal. Jim recently retired as a Professor at the University of Waterloo and remains involved in research and graduate […]
In this classical description of a hydrogeological Conceptual Model, Tom makes use of litho-facies correlation to understand a complex setting. The site is a US Air Force base in Charleston, South Carolina, with a long history of military development and use. It is characterized by the transgressive evolution of a Barrier Island System, crossed by […]
Flemming provides an excellent overview of the national groundwater protection program in Denmark, where almost 100% of the drinking water supply is sourced from groundwater. This impressive mapping and modelling effort has been in progress for the past 15 years. To date, two billion Danish kroner has been spent, and groundwater resources have been mapped […]
For the last 10 years, Fred has investigated the impact of Cape Breton’s changing climate on its freshwater resources. This information has then been used to aid in identifying methods of adaptation. This talk focuses on the technical aspects of what we know and don’t know about how climate is changing, and the effects on […]
Steve discusses numerical techniques for groundwater modelling, from a consulting perspective. In this presentation, he reviews two case studies: a water supply project in Ontario, and a lithium brine Reserve Estimate in Argentina. Steve is a groundwater modeller with Matrix Solutions Inc. and he has a background that includes a strong mix of consulting and […]
Sam King gives an overview of current trends on Particle Physics, in a presentation of his doctoral research at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), in Switzerland. Sam is a recent PhD graduate from the University of British Columbia, and he has a talent for taking an extremely intimidating subject, like Particle Physics and making it […]
We hope that you enjoy the following seminars….and please excuse some of the recording glitches that plague the first few. Please check back often for updates, which we expect will occur approximately every two weeks. And if you have any comments or suggestions for future talks, please drop me a line.
