We try to understand the role of groundwater in the hydrologic cycle by integrating measurement and simulation. This work is carried out in the field, the laboratory, and on computers. The Hydrogeology Program at CSULB is supported by the Bert and Ethel Conrey Endowment.
January 2013 - Students interested in getting a Master's Degree at CSULB, either in Hydrogeology or other fields of Geology, are encouraged to apply to the Carl W. Johnson-Bert Conrey Graduate Fellowship in Geological Sciences. The program supports a two year program of study. Applications are due April 1 and students interested in Hydrogeology are encouraged to contact Dr. Becker directly.
December 2012 - Fall AGU Meeting Presentations:
January 2012 - Adam Hawkins presented preliminary results of his fracture/rock heat exchange experiments at the 2012 Stanford Geothermal Workshop. He presented the paper "Measurement of the Spatial Distribution of Heat Exchange in a Geothermal Analog Bedrock Site Using Fiber Optic Distributed Temperature Sensing" .
