Dr. Sale received SERDP & ESTCP 2014 Project of the Year Award
Dr. Tom Sale received a SERDP and ESTCP 2014 Project of the Year award from Andrea Leeson, Deputy Director & Environmental Restoration Program Manager at SERDP & ESTCP on Friday, December 12th. This award recognizes outstanding research and technology developments that will benefit the Department of Defense (DoD).
These efforts are helping DoD enhance its mission capabilities, improve its environmental and energy performance, and reduce costs. Dr. Sale's project was in environmental restoration: Basic Research Addressing Contaminants in Low Permeability Zones. His team developed analytical and numerical modeling techniques to address transport and fate of contaminants in heterogeneous media, along with a State-of-the-Science review of management of contaminants in low permeability zones in aquifers.
Dr. Venayagamoorthy and Grad Students receive Francois Frenkiel Award
Dr. Karan Venayagamoorthy, and two of his graduate students, Benjamin Mater and Simon Schaad, have been unanimously selected by the American Physical Society for the top Physics of Fluid article by young investigators in 2013. They received the Francois Frenkiel Award the society's Division of Fluid Dynamics for their paper: "Relevance of Thorpe length scale in stably stratified turbulence."
The paper was selected "For new and significant insights into scaling laws for stratified turbulence with potentially broad impact in the area of environmental flows," according to the citation for the award.
The award was presented to Venayagamoorthy and his students at a recent Division of Fluid Dynamics meeting in San Francisco. For more information about this paper, click here.
