Important work on understanding our watershed


buoy trip

​Given the importance of the watershed to this region, impacting everything from health and culture to recreation and the local economy, it’s no surprise that Nipissing's Integrative Watershed Research Centre is a busy place with lots of interesting information to share.

The centre aims to promote and support integrative research on watersheds and related environmental issues in our region of northeastern Ontario and beyond.

Check out their website for recent blog postings from research assistants, including photos and details on summer research activities from Geography and Computer Science students.

Research assistant, David Duval reports on the work he is doing with Dr. Mark Wachowiak on various web-based data visualizations for the high frequency weather and water conditions data collected on Lake Nipissing by the Bays Projects.

Recent BSc Environment and Physical Geography graduate Jasmine Taulu worked as a research assistant last summer. She reports on the site about her work with Dr. April James, Canada Research Chair in Watershed Analysis and Modeling, setting up and running a pilot water isotope survey of the French River Water (see link here).

And that represents just a small sampling of the content available on the site. Go ahead, check out the website, and see for yourself all the amazing work happening here to help us better understand our watershed.
