Abstract

This week's seminar is the first panel discussion in the HAS Parade of Stars series. Our panelists will discuss the current knowledge gaps in Hydrological Science and introduce their research advances in Hydrological Science's specific fields, ranging from "visible" water, such as extreme floods, to " invisible" water, such as subsurface water and aquifers. In detail, Dr. Baker will bring us up-to-date with his 60 years' worth of experience with extreme floods and discuss the future and broad impacts of extreme flood research. Dr. Guo will discuss his porous media flow physics study for subsurface energy and its application in environmental problems. Dr. McIntosh will further explore subsurface water with the topic of deep subsurface fluid-rock-microbial systems. Dr. Winter will discuss his innovative research in quantifying parametric uncertainty in highly heterogeneous aquifers. Finally, Dr. Gupta will give us an overall picture of the hydrology cycle and discuss his advanced methodology for bridging machine-learning and physics-based strategies for Earth Science.
