On November 30, the LoCo2 project was launched at the Danish Technical University (DTU) in Lyngby, Denmark. The project is led by Dr. Hamid Nick of the Danish Offshore Technology Centre at DTU. LoCo2 will focus on the journey CO2 and other fluids will take to the seabed following a future storage site leak.

...For decades, applying road salt has been regarded as a simple but vital tool in countering the dangers of slippery road conditions, but the downsides of its use are apparent with implications that extend beyond the cold months...

Philippe presented the plenary keynote presentation entitled “The Environmental Biogeochemistry of Phosphorus: A tale of too little or too much” at the 12th National Conference on Environmental Chemistry (NCEC) held on November 17-21, 2023, in Wuhan, China.

Philippe visited China University of Geosciences (CUG) in Wuhan China on November 13-17. The visit included in-depth discussions on collaborations between Waterloo’s Ecohydrology Research Group (ERG) and CUG’s Environmental Hydrogeology Group (EHG). 

Members of the Ecohydrology Research Group volunteered to facilitate kids’ science activities at the University of Waterloo’s Science Open House on Saturday, October 28th. Over 4,000 people attended the Science Open House and Gem and Mineral show this year!

The Second Joint Symposium of the International Societies for Environmental Biogeochemistry and Subsurface Microbiology was held in Banff on 22-28 October. Philippe Van Cappellen, Jovana Radosavljevic, and Erin Griffiths attended.

A new paper published in Journal of Geophysical Research: Biogeosciences presents the results of analyses of two sediment cores from Lake Wilcox, a kettle lake located in the greater Toronto area. The results give insight on the impacts of land use/land cover changes on lake P biogeochemistry, and into the impact of road salt-caused salinization on lake ecosystems.
