menstrual hygiene day banner

In partnership with the Water Institute, HeForShe and the Applied Health Sciences Endowment Fund, the University of Waterloo celebrates Menstrual Hygiene Day (MH Day).

The global platform brings together non-profits, government agencies, the private sector, the media and individuals to promote Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM).

Tuesday, May 29, 2018 — 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM EDT

Dr. Claudia Wagner-Riddle from the University of Guelph will be presenting a talk as part of the Ecohydrology Seminar Series on May 29th.

Agricultural soils are a significant anthropogenic source of nitrous oxide (N2O), a trace gas that contributes to the enhanced greenhouse effect and stratospheric ozone destruction. The complex interplay of microbiological processes and soil conditions regulates N2O dynamics in the soil profile, and when N2O is released from the soil surface.
