Tom Aley, hydrologist/geologist Presentation

  • 13 Feb 2014
  • Inn of the Ozarks, Eureka Springs
  Tom Aley, hydrologist and geologist, who has extensive experience in the Ozarks region, presents a free program on Thursday, February 13, from 6:30 - 8:00 pm, at the Convention Center at the Inn of the Ozar...ks, Eureka Springs, about the fragile nature of karst geology that underlies much of the Ozarks. Recently, Aley gave expert testimony for Save The Ozarks (STO) during the recent Arkansas Public Service Commission hearing.

Aley is the founder and president of the Ozark Underground Laboratory. He has spent over 50 years in the professional study of holes in the earth and their interactions with human activities on the surface of the land. While he has worked all over the United States with some work in exotic foreign places, many of his investigations have been in the Ozarks.

He holds degrees from the University of California at Berkeley and has professional credentials in groundwater hydrology, geology, and forestry. He has pioneered groundwater tracing with fluorescent dyes. Groundwater is a valuable, but easily contaminated, resource in the Ozarks. Aley will explain why this is the case and how we can better protect our caves, springs, and groundwater.

There are increasing pressures being placed on our ecosystem in the name of progress. If you have an interest in watershed issues or how our groundwater systems may be impacted by the proposed 345 kV transmission lines, this is a program you don't want to miss."
