Calgary Herald Publishes Op-Ed by CH Director

The Calgary Herald (8th October 2013) has published an ‘op-ed’ by Centre for Hydrology Director Professor John Pomeroy.

In the¬†article, Prof. Pomeroy discusses options for reducing the risks of exposure to, and damage from, events such as this summer’s flooding in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba (which seem set to become Canada’s most expensive natural disaster).

He argues that improved prediction, avoidance and active mitigation should be integrated into a new Canadian national strategy, with hydrological science playing a key role.
