Confronting climate change in Canada’s North
Northern Canada is one of the fastest-warming regions on Earth. As climate change affects northern ecosystems at an accelerated pace, Laurier researchers are working closely with local governments and Indigenous communities to tackle urgent challenges. In this Inspiring Conversation, hear from three of Laurier’s leading researchers about their work in the Northwest Territories. Jennifer Baltzer, the Canada Research Chair in Forests and Global Change, will discuss how intensifying wildfires are impacting forest ecosystems. Homa Kheyrollah Pour, the Canada Research Chair in Remote Sensing of Environmental Change, will share how she’s using satellite observations and smart ground-based monitoring techniques to study the response of northern lakes to the changing climate. Finally, Associate Professor Miguel Sioui will explain how he is bridging Indigenous and Western knowledge to advance Indigenous environmental stewardship. This conversation will be moderated by Branden Walker (BA ‘15, MSc ‘17), manager of Laurier’s Arctic Hydrology Research Group.
