Erin defends her MSc thesis!

Ecohydrology Research Group MSc student Erin Griffiths successfully defended her thesis on June 10, 2024 in a virtual defence.

In a new paper published in the journal Aquatic Ecosystem Health & Management, ERG members Serghei Bocaniov and Philippe Van Cappellen, and Don Scavia from the University of Michigan use their recent re-assessments of Lake Erie’s water and phosphorus budgets to relate the average water column phosphorus concentrations to the external phosphorus loads via the water and phosphorus residence times. 

From May 26th to 29th, Ecohydrology Research Group members attended the 2024 Annual Meeting of the Canadian Geophysical Union (CGU) in Richcraft Hall at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario. The multidisciplinary conference featured public and plenary lectures and oral and poster presentations on hydrology, biogeosciences, geodesy, and solid earth.

The International Association of Great Lakes Research (IAGLR) hosted the 67th Annual Conference on Great Lakes Research on May 24-27 in Windsor, Ontario. The conference’s theme was Shared Lakes: One Water, One Health.

The first annual meeting of the “Adaptive management of green stormwater infrastructure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from urban watersheds” project was held on Friday May 10, 2024, at the CIGI campus in uptown Waterloo. The aim of the annual meeting was to review the progress of the work completed over the last year, and exchange ideas about further integration among the different work packages, while deepening collaborations with the external partners.

Members of a University of Waterloo delegation, including Stephanie Slowinski, Research Biogeochemist in ERG, attended the fourth session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee to develop an international legally binding instrument on plastic pollution, including in the marine environment (INC-4) in Ottawa from April 23 to 29.
