Ecohydrology hosts session at Goldschmidt conference in 2013
Philippe Van Cappellen and Ana Lima of the Ecohydrology research group along with Pasi Peltola will be hosting a session in the Hydrogeochemistry theme at the Goldschmidt conference in 2013. The title of the session is Urban Biogeochemistry. Hope to see you there!
The rare ECO Centre is hosting a symposium for the general public entitled "Water Symposium: Conserve and Protect" from 10:00 am to 2:30 pm. The panel of speakers include representatives from rare, Great Lakes United, Grand River Environmental Network, REEP Green Solutions, the Grand River Conservation Authority and Waterloo Region and Mindscape Innovations.
Please see their website for more details. Pre-registration is required.
Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition: Biogeochemistry Across Scales
The Ecohydrology Group is organizing a session on Biogeochemistry Across Scales in the Environmental Division of the Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition. The conference will be held in Québec city May 26-30th, 2013. Registration ends February 15th 2013.
The Water Institute Research Symposium of 2013 will showcase the breadth of Waterloo's water research programs, focusing on areas of particular interest to our external partners and stakeholders. The symposium is an excellent opportunity to interact with our researchers and students.
Research Symposium 2013 will be immediately followed by our annual Distinguished Lecture, Student Poster Competition and Reception.
Beyond the trails and gardens, rare is home to many research projects investigating the different habitats and species. The rare Research Forum which will showcase a variety of research projects happening on our land. We will learn about the growing tall-grass prairie, predation of wasps on tree crickets, ecological restoration of meadows, and hear from many others about what their research is uncovering at rare. Refreshments will be offered.

“Reviving the Dead Sea: Feasibility Study of the
Red Sea–Dead Sea Canal"
The Ecohydrology Research Group at the University of Waterloo is embarking on a feasibility study to assess the potential for using remote sensing and/or autonomous infrared sensors to monitor the distributions of microplastics in the oceans and large lakes. Field trials will focus on the Great Lakes.
A day-long celebration of World Water Day, highlighting university water research and raising awareness of local and global water issues.
Guest speakers will highlight the day which will also include an afternoon of poster presentations, display booths and networking opportunities.
