The Museum of Nature & Science and Sigma Xi present “Science Café – Understanding Groundwater and Surface Interactions through Lake Sinkhole Events,” with guest speaker Ming Ye, Ph.D.
Dr. Ye joins us via Zoom at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15 from Florida State University. Please contact or call 575/522-3120 for a link to the program or go to with webinar ID 87020967815.
 Groundwater and surface water interactions in areas with underlying limestone, also known as karst areas, have a unique feature that allows surface water to directly recharge a confined aquifer through karst features such as sinkholes and conduits. As a result, groundwater and surface water interactions in karst areas are highly dynamics, and aquifer geochemistry conditions are substantially affected by surface water recharge to confined aquifers.
 Dive into two lake sinkhole events where lake water first drained into sinkholes at lake beds, flowed in conduits of karst aquifers, and may have discharge at karst springs that are connected to the karst conduits.
 Dr. Ming Ye is a professor in the Department of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Science, and the Department of Scientific Computing at Florida State University. His research interests are groundwater numerical modeling, uncertainty assessment, karst hydrogeology, and environmental data science.
The Museum of Nature & Science, 411 N. Main St., is accessible from RoadRUNNER Transit Route 1, Stop 1. For additional information, visit the Museum System website at: or follow us on Facebook and Instagram @LCMuseums.
