Swimmers, tubers, and boaters often have the same question when they are in or around the water: what exactly is down there? UT’s Henry Goodrich Chair of Excellence Thanos Papanicolaou has helped solve that riddle by developing a way for researchers to see underwater sediment and predict its likelihood for mobility.
Jerad Bales, one of the world’s leading water resource experts, will address growing concerns and issues related to water availability, challenges, and safety at at 3:30 p.m. Monday, September 26 in Room 410 of the John D. Tickle Engineering Building. The event is free and open to the public.
The National Science Foundation talked about erosion and runoff with Thanos Papanicolaou.
UT Goodrich Chair of Excellence Thanos Papanicolaou has expanded on previous soil health research in an effort to better inform farmers and the agriculture industry.
Thanos Papanicolaou’s study of soil health over time is garnering attention in the scientific community. Science news service Phys.Org linked to the study, and the National Science Foundations’s Science 360 Newsletter made it the top story of the day.
A recent study led by the UT Goodrich Chair of Excellence Thanos Papanicolaou could very well change the way we view the health of our nation’s soil, even potentially altering history books. The paper, soon-to-be published in the Journal of Geophysical Research—Biogeosciences, focuses on modeling carbon budgets in agricultural areas.
Water-related issues are quickly shaping up to be a major concern around the world, and a new lab at UT hopes to tackle that concern. The Hydraulics and Sedimentation Laboratory officially opened this week, with the implications of its research already being felt.
Thanks to a program being funded in conjunction with the US Department of Agriculture, researchers at UT are helping lead a study on how best to avoid problems water use issues like the ones facing California and other areas.
The Mississippi River and its tributaries have provided water, transportation, and sustenance for people living along the water’s edge since well before Europeans set foot in the New World. A new group is helping make sure that role continues well into the future.
