  • Greetings from the Director – IIHR – Hydroscience & Engineering – University of Iowa
    excited by our continued evolution I believe he would still recognize the IIHR spirit in us Perhaps most important I believe that IIHR s people understand that we are involved in something bigger than ourselves Our work has important implications for the well being of our state our nation and our world It s exhilarating and energizing to know that our research could quite literally make the world a better place This sense of context keeps us going when we re tired when we re discouraged and when we might want to relax and take an easier route From top to bottom IIHR s people care about the institute and give it their best work and deepest commitment On the Shoulders of Giants As IIHR s current leader I am inspired to follow in the footsteps of Rouse and Kennedy and hope that I too can be the kind of leader that people want to follow I certainly believe in our collective ability to do amazing work and I believe in our people here at IIHR who continue to throw their best energies and creativity into the work Please enjoy exploring our website especially the many interesting projects on our research pages If you are a prospective graduate student please imagine yourself as an active participant in one of these projects Students really are the backbone of our organization Examples of some of the projects you might be able to work on include Study of PCBs and other toxins in the Great Lakes Phytoremediation research which uses poplar trees and other plants to break down toxic substances in the environment Safe and efficient fish passageways through hydroelectric dams The unique fluid mechanics of the human circulatory system and the refinement of mechanical heart valves and New developments in ship hydrodynamics and computational fluid dynamics IIHR Currents cover I hope this whets your appetite to learn more Check out this video about IIHR produced for Iowa Magazine I also invite you to explore our annual report magazine IIHR Currents which tells the stories of research and service at IIHR If you d like to receive a copy of IIHR Currents or if you have thoughts about these efforts to better tell the stories of IIHR please email me I look forward to hearing from you Larry J Weber Director IIHR Hydroscience Engineering Professor University of Iowa Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Edwin B Green Chair in Hydraulics Tags education Larry Weber service Witold Krajewski Last modified on June 29th 2015 Posted on January 19th 2011 Home About Greetings from the Director Fact Page IIHR at a Glance Where is IIHR Communications History IIHR s Historical Studies History Resources Hans Albert Einstein His Life as a Pioneering Engineer Sustainability at IIHR Evolving with the Times Intellectual Connections Worldwide IIHR Alumni Worldwide Archives Films by Hunter Rouse Employment Contact IIHR Webcam Education Graduate Program Admission Assistantships and Fellowships Graduate Student Opportunities Undergraduate Opportunities International Perspectives Service Projects Habitat for Humanity s Women
