This week, Ecohydrology Group members are presenting their research at the 2018 AGU Fall Meeting (December 10-14, 2018) in Washington, D.C. With nearly 24,000 attendees, the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world.
Adrian Mellage has successfully defended his PhD thesis titled "Hydrobiogeophysics: Linking geo-electrical Properties and Biogeochemical Processes in Shallow Subsurface Environments". Adrian completed his PhD with the Ecohydrology Research Group, at the University of Waterloo.
Environmental Science and Technology articles ASAP (as soon as publishable) now features a publication by Ecohydrology researchers Adrian Mellage, Laureline Vallée, Fereidoun Rezanezhad and Philippe Van Cappellen in collaboration with researchers from nanotechnology (https://www.frankgulab.com/).
A new paper, co-authored by Drs. Stephane Ngueleu, Fereidoun Rezanezhad and Philippe Van Cappellen, has been published in Journal of Contaminant Hydrology. The article, titled " Sorption of benzene and naphthalene on (semi)-arid coastal soil as a function of salinity and temperature ", was written in collaboration with Dr. Riyadh Al-Raoush from Qatar University.
The first Technion-Waterloo Research Symposium was held on the campus of Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, 21-22 November, 2018. Ecohydrology researchers Philippe Van Cappellen and Adrian Mellage attended the symposium. Philippe presented a talk entitled “Exploring the Subsurface – Or how spectral induced polarization (SIP) can be used to monitor below-ground colloid fate and transport”.
The 3rd Singapore-Nanjing Eco Hi-Tech International Water Environment Management Summit was held on October 22-23, 2018, in Nanjing China. On Monday, October 22nd, Philippe Van Cappellen gave a plenary lecture entitled "From Integrated Water Management to Adaptive Water Management". Philippe also chaired the "Smart Water Environment Workshop" on Tuesday, October 23rd.
This morning, Dr. Lakshika Girihagama from the Department of Physical and Environmental Sciences at the University of Toronto Scarborough, presented a talk titled "Physical circulation in the coastal zone of a large lake controls the benthic biological distribution" as part of the Ecohydrology Seminar Series. Thank you to Dr. Girihagama for the excellent talk!
