Designing Provincial-Scale Water Monitoring Networks To Meet Future Needs

The symposium continued on Day Two with a presentation from the Ontario Ministry of the Environment. The presentation focused on the province-wide stream water and groundwater monitoring networks that are currently being overseen by the Ministry of the Environment in partnership with Conservation Authorities and participating municipalities. These networks monitor ambient (baseline) stream water quality conditions… Continue Reading »

Levelogger Measures Greenland Ice Sheet Melt Water

The Greenland Ice Sheet covers 80% of the Island of Greenland – it is the largest ice mass in the Northern Hemisphere. Therefore, it should be no surprise that it is suspected to be a key contributor to current and future global sea level rise, particularly as the earth’s temperature continues to increase. Satellite evidence… Continue Reading »
