Em4 installation at St. Louis University.

We installed an Emriver Em4 model at the St. Louis University (SLU) Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences on Friday. Several faculty members there are interested in the model. Since we’re only two hours away, and there really is no substitute for seeing...

Research at SUNY using our Emriver Em2 model.

Research at SUNY using our Emriver Em2 model.

Ted Endreny at SUNY’s Environmental Science and Forestry program is one of our most enthusiatic Emriver Em2 users. He and grad student Bangshuai Han have done some very interesting work on meander cutoffs and groundwater interactions using an Emriver Em2 and...

NSF MRI program and our Emriver Em4.

NSF MRI program and our Emriver Em4.

We are hoping that the National Science Foundation’s Major Research Instrumentation program will be a good source of funding for our Emriver Em4 geomodels. The models are mechanically and conceptually proven, and represent a very fertile base for further...
