BER Research Highlights

PNNL Scientist Chosen as the Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecturer

Each year an outstanding groundwater professional is chosen by a panel of scientists and engineers as the National Ground Water Research and Education Foundation's (NGWREF) Darcy Lecturer to share his or her work with their peers and students at universities throughout the country and internationally. The 2010 honoree, the 24th and the first from a DOE Laboratory, is Dr. Timothy Scheibe, a staff scientist in the Hydrology Technical Group at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Scheibe has made major contributions to the field of groundwater modeling. His multidisciplinary and integrative approaches to computational modeling have brought new insights into the scaling of geochemical processes affecting contaminant transport and innovative methods to couple genome-based mechanistic understanding of biological processes with traditional groundwater modeling codes.
