Water fluxes and system evolution of mine pit lakes
Fully funded MSc and PhD students are being sought to work on research on End-Pit Lakes in the Athabasca Oil Sands Region. All oil sands mine closure landscapes are designed to include pit lakes. Thus, designing and constructing self-sustaining pit lake ecosystems in an...
On Monday May 6th, Lindsey successfully defended her MSc thesis titled 'Quantifying coniferous subalpine tree transpiration and source water under seasonal and hydrological stress in the Canadian Rocky Mountains'. Her work helps to inform subalpine forest hydrological connectivity in mountain watersheds, and gave insight to potential tree behaviour and water under a changing climate.
Lindsey will stay onboard with the Hydromet group continuing her work as the Kanasaskis Project Manager and Technician. She also works closely with the University of Saskatchewan's...
On Thursday, newly minted M.Sc Chrstine Van beest sucessfully defended her Masters thesis titled 'Deeper burning increases availabile phosphorus, promotes moss growth, and cabron dioxide instake in a fen peatland one-year post-wildfire in Fort McMurray, AB'. Christine's work has helped provide insights into the nutrient and carbon dynamics of post-burn peatland systems in Canada's north. Congratulations!!
Last week students from our group polished up and presented their research poster at the annual McMaster Water Week in Hamilton, Ontario. We had 7 total presenters, with a poster by Masters student Dylan Hrach titled 'Quantifying seasonal evapotranpiration of a sub-alpine wetland, Kananaskis, Alberta' winning the GWF Young Professionals Best Student Poster award. Congratulations to Dylan and all of our other students. Fantastic work!
New article recently published to Echohydrology by recent Hyromet M.Sc (2017) graduate Tristan Gingras-Hill et al. This work largely focussed on the work Tristan completed for his M.Sc degree with contributions from other Hydromet researchers Rich Petrone and Felix Nwaishi and Department of Geography professors Johnathan Price and Merrin Macrae.
Check out the article in Ecohydrology here, below is the abstract.
Students of the Hydrometeorology Research Group (7!!) recently attended the CGU Eastern Student Section annual gathering this year at the Western University on March 17, 2018. Students displayed their upcoming resarch and results in both presentation and poster formats. Check below for pictures of everyone that attended & their research!
Thanks to Western for hosting the day of networking and providing a platform to share our knowledge and findings.
New article just released by Science and the Total Environment featuring our own Lab Technician, Eric Kessel and his Masters thesis research on the Suncor reclaimed wetland. Congratulations! Give it a read hereor download below.
