Join us for the Ecohydrology Research Symposium on December 6th to celebrate the years of impactful research conducted by Philippe Van Cappellen and his students and colleagues, past and present. Research by Philippe and his colleagues has made innumerable contributions to various scientific fields spanning his career from his graduate studies at Yale to founding the Ecohydrology Research Group here at the University of Waterloo in 2011 and continuing today. We have planned a full day of exciting research talks to celebrate these contributions.
