Using Isotopes to Study Climate-Related Changes in Our Water Resources

Date: October 17, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Cost: Free

Join us for the next edition of the Water Innovation series on Alberta Innovates Unbound. The impacts of climate change can be clearly seen in our water resources. In Alberta, water quality is changing, and water supply is more variable and increasingly uncertain due to extreme weather events. Stable isotopes have been used to investigate water balance processes, and the relationships between hydrology, vegetation and ecosystems. These tools can help build an accurate baseline of water resources to better understand potential future states.

This webinar brings together four researchers who are using isotopes in different ways to characterize how climate change is affecting our water.
