lund_logoDr. Beth Parker recently completed a Nova Domus sponsored research exchange at Lund University from March 18-April 22, 2017.  During this research exchange, Beth was an invited speaker on topics that included:

  • Geologic time scales vs. contaminant transport time scales
  • High resolution characterization needed for groundwater flow system and transport predictions: How much data is enough?
  • The importance of hydrologic unit delineation sedimentary rock aquifers

Beth stated “This Nova Domus program offered an amazing opportunity to connect with new colleagues and a new place that may have never otherwise occurred. I am grateful for this memorable experience and looking forward to continuing the scientific collaborations with Dr. Sparrenbom and her colleagues for many years“.
