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).

CWRA Needs Donations

CWRA facilitates discussion among water users and water resource professionals. The perspectives can be from the private and public sectors in hydrology, irrigation and drainage, biology to climate change and education. CWRA has active Student and Young Professionals section with Scholarship and mentoring programs. We also support Water Education for Teachers through Project WET. There are affiliates dealing with education, hydrology or water and agriculture.

We organize conferences, symposiums and workshops dealing with a wide range of water issues, quarterly publish the Canadian Water Resources Journal since 1976 and the newsletter, Water News, as well as publishing papers and reports. We maintain a website with CWRA documents and proceedings from conferences and workshops.

The individual Branches provide a unique local perspective on water management and needs across our diverse country. The Branch volunteers provide other CWRA members with local knowledge of water-related activities through website updates, newsletters, workshops and conferences. The Canadian Committee on Irrigation and Drainage (CANCID) of the CWRA is the link between agriculture and water across Canada and with the International Committee on Irrigation and Drainage (ICID). The Canadian Society for Hydrologic Sciences (CSHS) is a society of the CWRA and represents the members who are interested in the hydrologic issues of Canadian water. The Students and Young Professionals (SYP) are made up of a diverse and active group of students and young professionals from a wide range of academic disciplines and have chapters located in most major cities across the country. The chapters welcome any and all students interested in water issues.

Project WET or "Water Education for Teachers" delivers hands on workshops that connect children, parents, educators and communities with water education that promotes the appreciation and stewardship of water resources.

Providing the natural systems of water resources with a common voice is important for our future and the CWRA is well positioned to accomplish that.
