Students Participate in Field Trip to Local Hydrology Laboratory

November 30, 2015

john stormontStudents in Vadose Zone Hydrology, taught by Dr. John Stormont, visited the laboratory of Daniel B. Stephens and Associates on November 16, 2015.  The visit allowed students to see how principles they learn in class are put into practice at a commercial testing laboratory.   This class included graduate and undergraduate students from a variety of programs, including civil engineering and the water resources program.   Vadose zone hydrology is a broad, multi-disciplinary field that concerns the movement and fate of water in the unsaturated zone of soil above the water table, and is therefore important to a wide range of applications including recharge of groundwater supplies, agricultural water use and contamination.
