ConocoPhillips Integrated Science Building, Room 215
Join the College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Geological Sciences as they host a lecture on climate change by David Boutt titled, “Ground Water and Climate Change: A Case Study From the Northeastern U.S.”
David Boutt is currently an associate professor in the Department of Geosciences at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. He received a B.S. and M.S. in geology from Michigan State University in 1997 and 1999 and a Ph.D. in hydrology in 2004 from the New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
Boutt worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the geohydrology group at Sandia National Laboratories prior to his appointment at UMass. Solidly grounded in the field of hydrogeology, Boutt works on problems involving coupled processes, ground water/surface water interactions and fractured rock hydrology. He is involved in a number of deep drilling programs from around the world including the NanTroSEIZE project.
