About the Author

Herb Wang

Dr. Herb Wang is Professor Emeritus of Geoscience at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he joined the faculty in 1972. His research in poroelasticity deals with the interaction between stress and pore fluid pressure. His recent research in this area has been in the context of Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS). His other recent research is in Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) in which fiber-optic cable is the sensor for seismic waves. Dr. Wang’s teaching has included hydrogeology, groundwater modeling, tectonophysics, rock mechanics, and environmental justice. He has been faculty advisor to 15 Ph.D. students, and he has published books on groundwater modeling and poroelasticity (see References above) and approximately 100 research articles. He received the 2003 Distinguished Teaching award from Wisconsin’s Phi Beta Kappa alpha chapter and the 2004 Distinguished Faculty award from the Department of Geoscience Board of Visitors.
