Yoram N. Rubin

My recent research interests include hydrogeology, flow and transport processes in geologic media, modeling and analysis of contaminant fate and migration patterns, geostatistics and stochastic methods, geological site characterization, geophysical methods for subsurface characterization, soil-plant-atmospheric interaction. 

Presentations by the Rubin Lab


A recent publication in HESS that came out of my lab's collective effort. We were curious as to why Stochastic Hydrogeology failed to meet the big expectations. This is what came out:
