Projets de recherche en cours

  • Global Water Futures - Pillar 3 Mountain Water Futures

    This project is lead by S. Carey at McMaster University. The goal of this project is to understand future water for the mountains of Western Canada and to improve the ability to predict future hydrological regimes and plan appropriate adaptation. Changes to Canada's western mountains are having profound and rapid impact on the rate, magnitude and timing of streamflow regimes, which is challenging current water resource management practices in the region.

  • Global Water Futures - Pillar 3 Precipitation-Related Climate Extremes

    This network is led by Ronald Stewart, University of Manitoba, and Francis Zwiers, Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium. This project will provide new insights into the future occurrence of precipitation-related extremes including drought, intense precipitation events and hazardous winter precipitation. Such extremes impact many sectors across Canada including agriculture (such as through effects on food production and crop damage), electrical utilities (such as through hydro power generation and transmission impacts), engineering design (such as through improved estimation of return levels for extreme precipitation), health (such as through impacts on water quality and water-borne diseases), and insurance (with a backdrop of recent record-breaking payouts such as the Calgary flooding and Fort McMurray wildfire).

  • Canadian Network for Regional Climate and Weather Processes

    This network is led by Prof. Laxmi Sushama. The goal is to exploit the added value of high-resolution models on climate and weather simulations, in particular in the representation of extremes, afforded as a result of the improved representation of physical processes, feedbacks and interactions through a Regional Earth System Model approach.

  • Changing Cold Regions Network (CCRN)

    This network is led by Prof Howard Weather, University of Saskatchewan. CCRN's overall aims are to integrate existing and new sources of data with improved predictive and observational tools to understand, diagnose and predict interactions amongst the cryospheric, ecological, hydrological, and climatic components of the changing Earth system at multiple scales, with a geographic focus on Western Canada's rapidly changing cold interior.
