Darcy Lecture Series 2010
January 8: Florida International University
- Host: Mike Sukop
- Department of Earth and Environment
Because of the cancelled flight the evening before, I had to get up at 3:00 AM to catch an early flight to Atlanta (where there was snow!) and on to Miami.
Mike and Xavier (one of his research associates) met me at the airport and we drove over to the campus. After a few meetings and lunch at the faculty club we headed out to get some fresh air. First stop was a well field being installed to study surface water / ground water interactions near a tidally-influenced canal. Then we took a drive out to the edge of the Everglades and snapped a few photos.
The talk was in the late afternoon and drew a good crowd. It was followed by an informal reception in the courtyard. Afterward I went to dinner with several people at a very authentic (and tasty!) Chinese restaurant called Lung Gong.
