Benjamin J. Galluzzo, Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Shippensburg University, will present "Water, water everywhere, but is it safe to drink?" on Tuesday, February 7th at Noon in Tome 115. Free pizza, everyone welcome!
Abstract: In Pennsylvania and throughout North America, clean potable water is in abundance, or is it? Interestingly, answers to this question are formulated using remarkably accessible mathematics. In this talk, we will introduce basic hydrogeologic principles and use algebraic manipulation - as well as a little calculus - to develop a working subsurface fluid flow model. The talk will conclude with a brief discussion on the direction of current research in the discipline.
