Seeing Into Earth: Imaging Our Groundwater Aquifers

May 9, 2015

How can we best manage water in California? Professor Rosemary Knight advocates using geophysical imaging to transform our management of groundwater.

Rosemary Knight, PhD ’85, is the George L. Harrington Professor in the School of Earth Sciences and senior fellow, by courtesy, at the Woods Institute for the Environment. Her research focuses on the development of geophysical methods to understand what’s occurring in the top 100 meters of Earth. By acquiring images of the near-surface region, researchers can monitor systems and extract information to help inform decisions regarding the evaluation and management of groundwater resources.
