Summary:
Water flows in mysterious ways. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory hydrogeologist Boris Faybishenko has discovered that the mystery of water flowing through the earth can be explained using chaos theory. Using this theory, he and his colleagues may be better able to model how water - and therefore waterborne contaminants - seeps from the earth's surface to the water table below.
