Welcome Center

The seminar is free and open to the entire campus community; registration is requested. A small reception will follow in the Welcome Center Lobby. The guest speaker will be Dr. John Gray, Scientist Emeritus, U.S. Geological Survey.  He will present, “Importance of sediment monitoring and research followed by a description of a sediment project or two that could be illustrative of the ‘importance.’” The relative importance of fluvial sediment as indicated by a variety of riverine metrics, including chemistry, habitat, channel morphology, commerce, water supply, and recreation, can be viewed as subordinate only to that of water flux. Dr. Gray will describe the relative importance of fluvial sediment in the environment; describe inroads in fluvial-sediment research and monitoring; and, using China’s Yellow River as an example, describe some unintended and catastrophic consequences of altering the natural sediment fluxes of sediment in a large river system.    Dr. Gray retired after 37 years with the U.S. Geological Survey.   After assignments in Urbana, IL and Tucson, AZ, he relocated to the USGS National Center in Reston, VA, where, beginning in 1996, he has served as the Office of Surface Water’s National Sedimentologist.  He is certified by the American Institute of Hydrology as a Professional Hydrologist, and is a founding member of the World Association for Sedimentation and Erosion Research.  His professional bibliography includes 100+ citations.  A short reception will immediately follow Dr. Gray's presentation at 3:30 p.m. We hope you are able to join us for this interesting seminar!
