Lecture: Groundwater as a Buffer to Climate Change
August 9, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The Northeastern United States is experiencing rapid changes in its hydrology due to intense land-use change, urbanization, and climate change. Join SEMPBA, Living Observatory, and Wildlands Trust in welcoming Professor David Boutt to the Community Conservation Barn for this special presentation that will explore how small, unconfined aquifer systems respond to these hydro-climatic and land-use changes. Pre-lecture gathering at 6:30, lecture at 7:00 PM.
David is a professor of Hydrogeology at UMass Amherst. He has researched groundwater deposits and behavior under the ocean in the Atacoma Desert in Chile. David was the Birdsall-Dreiss Distinguished Lecturer for 2018, and he is a founding member of Living Observatory.
