Lake Futures PI Nandita Basu and Co-I Philippe Van Cappellen were part of a delegation of 24 water scientists to participate in Water Day on the Hill. This event brought together top water scientists from 14 institutions across Canada to discuss key water challenges and solutions with federal officials on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
As part of Science Literacy Week, Nandita Basu gave a public lecture at the Waterloo Public Library titled ‘Protecting Our Water’. Community members and students shared the space to learn about the impacts of nutrient pollution and algal blooms, and how we can work to mitigate these effects.
Lake Futures researchers Jess Ives and Serghei Bocaniov presented their work at the 62nd annual International Association for Great Lakes Research (IAGLR) Conference. This conference was held in Brockport NY, USA and hosted by The College at Brockport, State University of New York. This year, more than 650 scientists and researches from academia, government agencies and non-governmental organizations gathered together to improve our current understanding of complex environmental problems affecting the world’s largest lakes, such as cultural eutrophication, invasive species, new emerging contaminants, and climate change.
