WyCEHG: Linking surface hydrology and groundwater through near-surface geophysics

2013 Spring Cyberseminar Series

Presenter(s):
Steve Holbrook / University of Wyoming
Scott Miller / University of Wyoming

Talk Description:

Professors Dr. Scott Miller and Dr. Steve Holbrook (University of Wyoming) will present an overview of the goals, facilities, and scientific plans of the new Wyoming Center for Environmental Hydrology and Geophysics (WyCEHG).  WyCEHG is in its first year of existence, having been initiated in July 2012 by a 5-year, $20 M grant from the National Science Foundation.  The goal of the center is to promote scientific progress in mountain hydrology at the watershed scale, using near-surface geophysics as a tool to link surface and subsurface hydrological models.  WyCEHG is an interdisciplinary center, bringing together researchers from surface and subsurface hydrology, ecology, paleohydrology, geochemistry, geomorphology, and geophysics.  By the end of the five-year grant, WyCEHG intends to transition to a self-sustaining, national facility for hydrogeophysics, hopefully in connection with CUAHSI.  We will describe WyCEHG's plans and facilities, and show some preliminary scientific results.
