May 2: Water in developing countries: Case studies from Benin, West Africa, focus of Darcy Lecture

Stephen E. Silliman, the 2011 Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecturer, will discuss his work in developing groundwater resources in Benin, West Africa, at a talk in Room 103 Gore Hall on Monday, May 2, at 3:30 p.m. Ensuring a high-quality water supply can pose challenges in developing countries, since it requires both reliable hydrologic data and effective collaboration among local communities. Silliman will discuss the value of both statistical analysis when sampling in difficult environments, as well as the power of close collaboration with in-country colleagues and local populations.
