ONU welcomes Ferré for lecture on groundwater science
Olivet Nazarene University (ONU) hosted Hydrology and Water Resources professor Dr. Ty Ferré Wednesday for a lecture on “Seeing Things Differently: Rethinking the Relationship Between Data, Models and Decision-Making.”
As the 2016 National Groundwater Association’s Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecturer, Ferré co-presented with the Walker School of Engineering and the Department of Chemistry and Geosciences. Ferré teaches courses on hydrology, water resources, soil and environmental science at the University of Arizona.
Ferré was expected to discuss methods for decision-making on water issues and also explore how science can help individuals, governments and business leaders make informed decisions about water use.
“We are excited to host Dr. Ferré at Olivet,” ONU Engineering professor and professional hydrogeologist Dr. Kevin Brewer said. “This is an excellent opportunity for students, faculty and professionals to learn from him. He will also be talking with students about pursuing careers in the sciences.”
The Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecture series has been running since 1986 and focuses specifically on groundwater science and technology. This year's program will bring Ferré to Stanford University, Boise State University, Clemson University and the U.S. Department of Energy.
