Dr. Hans Duerr and a team of international collaborators discover there is more CO2 emitted from inland streams and rivers than lakes. Their findings were reported in the November 21, 2013 issue of NATURE. For a summary of their findings, see: /earth-environmental-sciences/uwaterloo.ca/news/news/study-finds-rivers-and-streams-release-more-greenhouse-gas
Our Earth Sciences Museum was the venue for a networking meeting of the South West Ontario Chapter of the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario (APGO) on November 20, 2013. Dr. Steve Evans gave a stimulating presentation on geohazzards including a first-hand account of the Fukushima Disaster Site in Japan. It was great to see many of our Earth Sciences alumni there and the APGO staff were delighted to see so many students in attendance.
Our Peter Russell Rock Garden was the subject of a feature article in The Record as part of a promotion of the Faculty of Science Open House. Barry Warner and Corina McDonald have been gathering some additions to expand our collection of rocks from across Canada. The Rock Garden is used for assignments for our first year Earth 121 class. We have some very astute earthies entering our program this year - they discovered some minor errors on a couple of the labels on the rocks!
