The Ice Boom Broke! Now What?? Understanding and Managing Ice During the Construction of the Keeyask Generating Station  

Understanding and managing ice on the mighty Nelson River in northern Manitoba is critical to reduce ice related risks during the construction of the Keeyask Generating station.  Years of monitoring and modelling of the ice processes along the river indicated that an ice boom would be required to protect the construction areas, but what happens when the ice boom fails? This presentation describes the ice processes, the ice boom design and construction and some of the actions that were required when the ice boom failed.

November 16th, 2017 (1-2pm) at the University of Manitoba (EITC E2-105)

Presented by : Mike Morris, M.Sc., P.Eng.  Manitoba Hydro

Recent drought effects on Alberta’s forests under a changing climate

November 21, 2017

12:00 Mountain

Ted Hogg, Research Scientist, Natural Resources Canada – Canadian Forest Service

Since the turn of the 21st century, conditions have been exceptionally dry across large areas of the western Canadian boreal forest, especially in Alberta.  In our research, we are using a combination of tree-ring analysis and monitoring of forest plots to examine the impact of recent severe droughts on the growth and health of aspen (poplar) and white spruce forests across the region.  The work includes application of two indicators of moisture conditions relevant to water stress in forests: the Climate Moisture Index and the Soil Moisture Index.   Our results have revealed that the exceptional droughts of 2001-2002 and 2014-2016 have led to widespread decline in both of these commercially important tree species across Alberta’s boreal and parkland zones.  This poses a serious concern for the future, based on model projections of warmer and drier conditions across the region in future under a changing climate.  From a forest management perspective, successful adaptation may require the application of innovative practices aimed at minimizing the negative aspects of climate change (e.g., increased drought, fire and insect damage) while realizing its potential benefits (e.g., increased tree growth from longer growing seasons).
