EES Welcomes 2017 Darcy Leturer Dr. Kamini Singha

EES is pleased to welcome 2017 Darcy Lecturer  Dr. Kamini Sigha. She is Professor of Hydrology in the Department of Geology and Geological Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines. Singha will present "The Critical Role of Trees in Critical Zone Science: An Exploration of Water Fluxes in the Earth's Permeable Skin".

Earth’s “critical zone” — the zone of the planet from treetops to base of groundwater — is critical because it is a sensitive region, open to impacts from human activities, while providing water necessary for human consumption and food production. Geophysical tools are central to the quantitative study of problems in the deeper subsurface where we don’t have easy access for observation. In particular, this lecture explores the role of trees in the critical zone, and their connection to soil moisture, groundwater and streams through innovative imaging?.

Join us for this facinating look at critical zone science on Friday, September 29, 2017 at 12:30 PM in Room 204, Natural Science building on the East Lansing campus.
