CH / CRHO In The News

The Canadian Rockies Hydrological Observatory, which is being established in the Kananaskis and Upper Bow drainages by CH staff based at the Coldwater Laboratory, was the subject of a detailed article in the December 13th issue of Canmore’s Rocky Mountain Outlook.
The piece describes the purpose and aims of the project in improving river-flow predictions in the Prairies, through detailed observation of hydrometeorological conditions in the mountain headwaters of the South Saskatchewan River.
It also highlights the importance of major funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (40%), Province of Saskatchewan (40%) and U of S (20%) in covering the $835,000 cost.
