Dr. John Pomeroy to offer webinar on Mountain Snow Hydrology, September 3, 2020

September, 3, 2020
6am -7:30am, CST

This presentation will review advances in understanding the snow processes that control the hydrology of high mountain areas: snow accumulation, redistribution by wind and gravity, interception by forest canopies, sublimation, snowmelt and runoff generation. It will discuss how these processes operate in various high mountain environments, how they can be measured and show through computer simulations how they work together at the headwater catchment scale to generate downstream water resources. Snow processes are particularly sensitive to climate warming and so their role in controlling the vulnerability of water resources to climate change will be highlighted.

A researcher in the University of Saskatchewan’s (USask) College of Arts and Science is one of the collaborators on a new national network to study deadly blood infections.

On July 23, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) announced the creation of Sepsis Canada, a new research network that will improve the treatment of sepsis, a life-threatening condition that can result from infection.

Dr. Corinne Schuster-Wallace (PhD), a faculty member in the College of Arts and Science’s Department of Geography and Planning, is a co-investigator on the project. Dr. Joann Kawchuk (MD) of the USask College of Medicine is another co-investigator.
