WATERLOO, Ont. (Thursday, Nov. 29, 2012) – A team of researchers from the University of Waterloo has built the world's largest simulation of a functioning brain. It can help scientists understand how the complex activity of the brain gives rise to the complex behaviour exhibited by animals, including humans.
In April 2012, the Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) raised questions regarding the governance structure of the Balsillie School of International Affairs (BSIA) as it pertains to academic integrity. CAUT threatened to censure the administrations of the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University in the event its concerns were left unaddressed.
WATERLOO, Ont. (Monday, Nov. 12, 2012) - A research project with its roots at the University of Waterloo has found that human activity is raising levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the uppermost layers of the atmosphere.
It is the first hard evidence that such levels are increasing there at a faster rate than can be explained by solar activity or exhaust from rocket launches. The project’s CO2 measurements are reported in the latest issue of Nature GeoScience.
