Snehota to Talk on Water Flow in Soils

Michal Snehota, a water management research engineer at the Czech Technical University, will talk about “How residual air affects water flow and solute transport in near-saturated soil” in a free public lecture at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln on Monday, June 2.

Snehota specializes in fundamental research on water flow and the transport of solutions through porous media such as various soil types, focusing on preferential and unstable flows of contaminants in the soil’s vadose zone, which is that area of soil that lies between the land’s surface and the water table or aquifer, where plant roots grow.

Snehota does this using state of the art non-invasive imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging, x-ray tomography and neutron imaging.

The free, public lecture is 2-3 p.m., Monday, June 2 in the Hardin Hall auditorium on the UNL East Campus, North 33rd and Holdrege Streets.
