This work examined how forest harvesting has impacted warm-season low flows in the Pacific Northwest. In general, an initial increase in low flows was followed by a longer-term decline that lasted for decades in some watersheds. This trend has important implications for environmental flow needs, water allocation decisions, and managing fisheries. Common approaches that are used to model hydrological recovery are also inconsistent with the post-harvest response of low flows.

Robin McKillop is participating in the Working Group that will develop technical content for the National Standard of Canada on a Risk-based Approach for Community Planning in Northern Regions. The Northern Infrastructure Standardization Initiative is working to help Canada’s Northern regions build resilient infrastructure to withstand and adapt to the changing climate.

On February 6, 2018, amendents were introduced by Fisheries and Oceans Canada to combat changes made in 2012, to ensure long term sustainability of marine resources and increase the scope of regulated protections. Of the proposed changes, increased clarity regarding permitting development in aquatic environments has taken a major step forward.

Join Palmer’s very own Dave Sacco on a day long field trip in the Slave Geological Province outside of Yellow Knife, NWT, on August 22nd, 2021. The field trip will encompass several site visits in the Slave Geological Province to showcase how glacial, deglacial, and post-glacial processes can inform the collection and interpretation of surface sediment samples for kimberlite exploration.
