ALONG THIS STRETCH OF ALASKA HIGHWAY, where it curves between the southern edge of Lhù’ààn Män lake and the rugged peaks of the southwest Yukon, the dust storms can blow so thick that drivers have been forced to pull over. Where the two-lane road crosses A´ąy Chù river, sand drifts across the pavement as if it were snow.
Registration is now open for the CH / CSHS Short Course in The Principles of Hydrology, which will run from 10-21 January 2020 at the Barrier Lake Field Station, Kananaskis Valley, Alberta.
Centre for Hydrology Ph.D. student, Chris Marsh, will defend his Ph.D. thesis, entitled Multi-scale modelling of cold regions hydrology.
Date: Monday, August 12, 2019
Time: 9 am
Place: Room 2D71 Agriculture Building.
BOW VALLEY – In the Rockies, the story of the late spring/early summer snowpack is a tale of two worlds.
In the lower elevations and the valley bottoms, the snow melted away early, while in the higher elevations it has only just begun to melt.
“There’s still lots of snow up high, but not much down low,” said snow hydrologist John Pomeroy, director of the University of Saskatchewan’s Centre for Hydrology which conducts much of its research in the Rockies.
Bob Haver has never seen the river running so low, and he’s been rowing on it for 45 years.
A founder of the Saskatoon Rowing Club, Haver is attuned to the rising, falling and shifting of the South Saskatchewan’s sandbars; at present, they are serious challenges for river users. Continue reading
