Darcy Lecture Series in Groundwater Science

Henry Darcy

The Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecture Series in Groundwater Science fosters interest and excellence in groundwater science and technology. It was established in 1986 and named in in honor of Henry Darcy of France for his 1856 investigations that established the physical basis upon which groundwater hydrogeology has been studied ever since.

Each year, a panel of scientists and engineers invites an outstanding groundwater professional to share his or her work with their peers and students through this lecture series. The Darcy Lecture Series is most often presented at universities and professional associations throughout the world.

Special note regarding the 2021-2022 Darcy Lecture being presented by Chen Zhu, Ph.D.

COVID-19 may necessitate changes be made to the traditional scheduling and presentations by the Darcy Lecturer due to health and safety concerns, in addition to government mandates. As these circumstances change, we will work with the hosts who requested the lecture and update the schedule of presentations as warranted. The Groundwater Foundation will ultimately decide if a presentation will be virtual or in-person. (Those who submitted requests will receive appropriate communication.)

Note that the request form for the 2022-2023 lecture will be posted pending the announcement of the chosen lecturer.
