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

Dr. Tricia Stadnyk, Professor and Canada Research Chair at the University of Calgary

Francisco Castrillon, Senior Researcher Environmental Services, InnoTech Alberta

Dr. John Gibson, Principal Researcher Environmental Services, InnoTech Alberta

Dr. Bernhard Mayer, Professor, University of Calgary
