As part of Carleton University’s Science Café series, Richard Amos, professor in the Department of Earth Sciences, will present: Black Boxes – Using Models in Groundwater Science.

When: Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018, at 6:30 p.m.
Where: Sunnyside Branch of the Ottawa Public Library, 1049 Bank Street, Ottawa
Info: This event is free and open to the public.

Potable water is a critical and limited resource throughout the world – constantly under threat from overuse and contamination. Groundwater, in particular, serves as the primary source of fresh water throughout Canada and the world for irrigation, industry and domestic use. Groundwater scientists have used computer models to understand its flow and the complex geochemical reactions that control the concentrations of natural solutes and contaminants.

During this talk, Amos will explore the use of models in groundwater science and how they help us to better understand groundwater processes and better manage groundwater resources.

The Science Café series is organized by the Faculty of Science at Carleton University to discuss relevant issues facing our society and how science can help solve real-world problems. Meet some of our award-winning faculty members and graduate students as they share their excitement about science with the community. For more information, visit:é.
