Arguably, fresh water is becoming our most valuable commodity. Where once we could expect to turn on the tap and receive a never-ending supply of fresh, clean, safe water — climate and contamination are threatening to upend this reliability. Prof. Brian Berkowitz’s research centers around the experimental analysis and computer modeling of fluid and chemical transport with particular emphasis on groundwater systems. He and his colleagues are developing methods for environmentally-friendly treatment of contaminated water and industrial contaminants.
Professor Brian Berkowitz, Professor, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Weizmann Institute, Rehovot, Israel will discuss this issue. Prof. Berkowitz who was born in Canada, received his BSc and MSc degrees in Applied Mathematics in 1980 and 1982, respectively, from the University of Alberta. He completed his DSc at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. He joined the faculty of the Weizmann Institute in 1993.

Knoxville Holiday Canstruction is a creative and fun art exhibition with a serious purpose – fighting hunger. For the fifth year in a row, local companies will team up to design and construct large holiday-themed art sculptures made up of canned food items, which are placed on public display at the Knoxville Convention Center for families to visit throughout the holiday season. So far, Knoxville Holiday Canstruction has donated more than 110,000 canned food items to Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee and plans to exceed those goals in its fifth year.
