About the Darcy Lectures
The Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecture Series in Groundwater Science fosters interest and excellence in groundwater science and technology. It was established in 1986 by the Groundwater Foundation and named 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.
Professor Chen Zhu is the 2021-2022 Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecturer. He has given about 60 lectures at universities, national labs, government agencies (NSF, USGS, EPA), and annual conferences of professional organizations. More than 4,000 attendees from 35 US states, six Canadian provinces, and 25 countries participated in the lectures (see the maps below).
