Swimmers, tubers, and boaters often have the same question when they are in or around the water: what exactly is down there?

UT’s Henry Goodrich Chair of Excellence Thanos Papanicolaou has helped solve that riddle by developing a way for researchers to see underwater sediment and predict its likelihood for mobility.

For that breakthrough, Papanicolaou has been named the 2018 Hans Albert Einstein award winner from the American Society of Civil Engineers.
