Welcome to Duguay Research Group

Welcome to the home page of the Duguay Research Group. We are associated with the Interdisciplinary Centre on Climate Change and the Department of Geography and Environmental Management at the University of Waterloo. Our research focuses on improving knowledge and understanding of lake/land – atmosphere interactions in cold (Arctic and Alpine) regions through development of remote sensing technology and retrieval algorithms, and numerical models. This website provides information on the people in our research group, our current research projects, our main research facility, our publications, and media coverage of our research results.

For general information about graduate studies with our group, please visit the web site of the Waterloo-Laurier Graduate Program in Geography. For more specific queries regarding graduate, undergraduate and postdoctoral research opportunities, please contact Professor Claude Duguay directly.
