Cold Regions Hydrology
Improving our understanding of cold region hydrology forms the core of the Group’s mission. Funded primarily through the NSERC Discovery and Northern Supplement Program and the Global Water Futures program, this work explores how Canada’s cold climate affects hydrological and hydrochemical processes in watersheds that are influenced by snow, ice and cold temperatures. In addition, improving our ability to understand, measure, parameterize and predict these processes is an ongoing challenge, and is a central focus of the research. The Group combines laboratory, fieldwork and numerical methods to explore scientific issues at at the forefront of cold region hydrology.
