Hydrology from the bottom up: How groundwater shapes the water cycle

EMPOWER welcomed Professor Reed Maxwell, the 2020 Darcy Lecturer in Groundwater Science for a talk focused on groundwater impacts on the water cycle. The lecture was jointly hosted between Syracuse University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.  Dr. Reed Maxwell is faculty in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Princeton University. His research interests are focused on understanding connections within the hydrologic cycle and how they relate to water quantity and quality under anthropogenic stresses. He is an elected Fellow of the American Geophysical Union, was the 2018 Boussinesq Lecture and the 2017 School of Mines Research Award recipient. He has authored more than 120 peer-reviewed journal articles and teaches classes on integrated hydrology, fluid mechanics and modeling terrestrial water flow.
