Joseph Birman Obituary
Dr. Joseph Harold Birman, Geologist, Professor Emeritus at Occidental College, and founder of Geothermal Surveys, Inc. (GSi/water), passed away on December 23rd, 2015. He was 91. He leaves behind his two sons, David and Daniel Birman, his grandchildren Jessica Johnson and Aaron Birman, and four great grandchildren. Joe also left behind a remarkable scientific legacy that spans more than 60 years of original research, from mapping the paths of the glaciers that once dominated Earth, making the case for early civilization in the Persian Gulf, to inventing the technology that uses shallow temperature probes to detect the movement of groundwater. Services have yet to be announced.
