Dr. Rainer H. Helmig of the University of Stuttgart will offer two lectures
Dr. Rainer H. Helmig will offer two lectures in the 2015 Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecture Series in Groundwater Science, the National Ground Water and Research Educational Foundation announced.
Helmig is head of the department of hydromechanics and modelling of hydrosystems at the Institute for Modelling Hydraulic and Environmental Systems, University of Stuttgart, Germany.
The first of his two lectures is titled "Evaluating the Competitive Use of the Subsurface: The Influence of Energy Storage and Production in Groundwater." In this lecture, Helmig will provide insight into how advanced numerical models may be used to analyze and predict the mutual influence of subsurface projects and their impact on groundwater reservoirs, and the expanding need to do so.
During this lecture, participants will learn about:
The second lecture is titled "Modeling and Analysis of Soil-Moisture Processes in the Subsurface: The Influence of Evaporation and Salt Precipitation in Groundwater." In this lecture, Helmig will explore how soil-moisture processes in the subsurface play a crucial role in the hydrological cycle and the groundwater budget.
In this lecture, participants will learn about:
