Waterloo – Wilfrid Laurier University’s Cold Regions Research Centre is hosting a free public talk on cold regions hydrology by eminent expert Ming-ko Woo, a professor emeritus from McMaster University. The talk will be held Tuesday, Oct. 30, at Laurier’s Waterloo campus.

“Professor Woo is one of the founders of cold regions sciences and is very well known internationally,” said Associate Professor William Quinton, director of the Cold Regions Research Centre. “Given the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report on global warming and acknowledgement that warming will be particularly rapid in the Arctic, Professor Woo’s talk on the future of climate and water resources in the Canadian Arctic will be highly relevant and of great interest to a wide audience.”

Woo’s talk will journey through 50 years of Canadian cold regions hydrology, which examines snow, ice, frozen ground and cold waters. Using specific examples, Woo will speak about advances in hydrology that provide a basis to address the effects of climate change on the water resources of cold regions.

The talk takes place at 3:30 p.m. at the Paul Martin Centre, 75 University Ave. W., Waterloo. Refreshments will be provided. No registration is necessary.
