The first international joint conference between the International Association for Great Lakes Research (IAGLR) and the European Large Lakes Symposium (ELLS-IAGLR 2018), entitled "Big Lakes, Small World", is being held in Evian, France from September 23 to 28, 2018. The conference featured five days of plenaries, workshops, posters, and keynote presentations focused on Large Lakes’ research.
A new paper, co-authored by Dr. Fereidoun Rezanezhad, has been published in Frontiers in Marine Science. The article, titled "Understanding the Coastal Ecocline: Assessing Sea–Land Interactions at Non-tidal, Low-Lying Coasts Through Interdisciplinary Research", was written in collaboration with Baltic TRANSCOAST research group in Germany.
Bingjie Shi has successfully defended her PhD thesis, titled "Tracing Redox cycles during Microbe Clay Interactions Using Stables Iron Isotopes". Bingjie completed her PhD with the Ecohydrology Research Group, at the University of Waterloo. The members of her examination committee were Dr. Eric Roden, Dr. Laura Hug, Dr. Philippe Van Cappellen, Dr. Paul Schroeder, and Dr. David Blowes.
This afternoon, Dr. Eric Roden, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, presented a talk titled "Rust Never Sleeps: Biogeochemical and Genomic Aspects of Microbial Fe Redox Cycling" as part of the Ecohydrology Seminar Series. Thank you to Dr. Roden for the excellent talk!
For more information about the presentation, please see the event listing.
Tariq Aziz has successfully defended his PhD thesis, titled "Watershed Ecosystem Services: Linking Economic Valuation and Ecohydrology". Tariq completed his PhD with the Ecohydrology Research Group, at the University of Waterloo.
Zahra Akabarzadeh has successfully defended her PhD thesis, titled "Quantitative Modeling of Nitrogen Cycling Along the River Continuum: Stream Bed Sediments, Reservoirs and Isotopes". Zahra completed her PhD with the Ecohydrology Research Group, at the University of Waterloo.
Gabriel Bacca has successfully defended his PhD thesis, titled "Coupling Reactive Transport and Travel Time Modeling at Watershed Scale". Gabriel completed his PhD with the Ecohydrology Research Group, at the University of Waterloo. The members of his examination committee were Dr. Philippe Van Cappellen, Dr. David Rudolph, Dr. James Craig, and Dr. Fereidoun Rezanezhad.
A new paper, co-authored by Drs. Fereidoun Rezanezhad and Philippe Van Cappellen has been published in Science of the Total Environment. The article, titled "Effects of freezing and thawing on water infiltration, soil structure, and nutrient removal", was written in collaboration with Brenden Ding, Behrad Gharedaghloo, and Dr. Elodie Passeport. The paper assesses the effects of freezing and thawing cycles on bioretention processes, which has implications for how bioretention cells can be used to mitigate nutrient pollution in cold climates.
