Events - 2020

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 — 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM EDT

The Town Hall is an opportunity for Science leadership to listen to concerns from our Science community on racism and discrimination of all forms, from overt acts to those more unconscious in nature. The goal is for us to gain a better understanding of the problems facing Black, Indigenous and People of Colour. We hope to provide our Science Anti-Racism Taskforce with sufficient directions to formulate mitigation strategies so we may work together to become an inclusive academic society without racism.

The role of dams and the nearshore zone on phosphorus flows along the river-lake interface

With continued concern for eutrophication in the lower Great Lakes, scientists, government and stakeholders continue to work together towards effective management solutions. In these freshwater systems, phosphorus is a main driver of algal blooms. Our ability to manage phosphorus in these systems to improve water quality is limited by our understanding of phosphorus flows and cycling along rivers and into large lakes.
