In Calibrating and Testing Models

Posted April 10, 2001

HOLLAND -- Dr. Mary C. Hill of the U.S. Geological Survey in Boulder, Colo., will examine the calibration and testing of models on Wednesday, April 18, at 4 p.m. at Hope College in room 220 of the Peale Science Center.

The public is invited. Admission is free.

Her address, "Guidelines for Effective Model Calibration (Any Model!)," will explore how nonlinear regression and associated statistics can be used to dramatically improve how data are used to calibrate and test models.

She is presenting the 2001 Darcy Distinguished Lecture of the college's department of geological and environmental sciences. The event is sponsored by the Association of Ground Water Scientists and Engineers of the National Ground Water Association.

Peale Science Center is located on College Avenue at 12th Street. Refreshments will be served during the talk.
