Hydrology and its Practical Application and Uses

The 1992–1993 Killian Award lecturer was Peter S. Eagleson, Edmund K. Turner professor of civil engineering, who is recognized internationally for his work in hydrology and hydro-climatology. The selection committee cited Professor Eagleson’s vision as head of his department from 1970 to 1975 and commended him for his work as chair of the National Research Council Committee, which, under his leadership, produced an authoritative and imaginative strategy for the hydrologic sciences going into the next century. As president of the 25,000-member American Geophysical Union, Professor Eagleson “admirably represented and nurtured an emerging interdisciplinary view of the earth sciences which will help the AGU address the scientific and societal problems of the future.” Read more at MIT News.
