IonE Profile of MSI PI Gulliver

posted on November 7, 2013

Professor John Gulliver (Civil Engineering, St. Anthony Falls Laboratory, and Institute on the Environment Resident Fellow) was recently profiled on the Institute for the Environment’s “Eye on Earth” blog. The blog post highlights Professor Gulliver’s work studying stormwater runoff.

Professor Gulliver is an expert on a number of issues related to water. He and his research group use MSI resources to study how hydraulic structures, such as dams and reservoirs, affect the concentration of gases in the water that flows around and over them. The turbulent flow from the spillways in these structures results in a higher percentage of dissolved gases in the water, which affects the fish population. The Gulliver group uses HPC resources to model the turbulent flow.
