Program & Project Involvement

Mountain Pine Beetle Ecology Program
Program

Mountain Pine Beetle Ecology Program

The program carries out focused research on infestations of mountain pine beetle in Alberta.

Water Program
Program

Water Program

In 2011, the Fish and Watersheds Program refocused on hydrology and became the Water Program.

Watershed Assessment Procedure to address cumulative effects in the eastern slopes natural region
Project

Watershed Assessment Procedure to address cumulative effects in the eastern slopes natural region

This project will develop a tool for assessing how watersheds in the eastern slopes are affected by disturbance.

Watershed Assessment Procedure to address cumulative effects in the foothills natural region
Project

Watershed Assessment Procedure to address cumulative effects in the foothills natural region

This project transfers the eastern slopes watershed assessment procedure to the foothills.

Understanding the impact of culverts on fish communities and optimization tools for mitigation efforts
Project

Understanding the impact of culverts on fish communities and optimization tools for mitigation efforts

This project investigates whether bridges and culverts affect stream connectivity and fish communities.

Towards Integrated Source Water Management in Alberta
Project

Towards Integrated Source Water Management in Alberta

This project is part of the Southern Rockies Watershed Project aimed at understanding headwater processes and the hydrologic response to fire and forestry.

Longterm Implications of Mountain Pine Beetle Rehabilitation Strategies on Alberta Forest Values
Project

Longterm Implications of Mountain Pine Beetle Rehabilitation Strategies on Alberta Forest Values

This project explores the 20 to 50-year implications of MPB rehabilitation on timber and non-timber values.

Exploring the Use of Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP) in Southwest Alberta
Project

Exploring the Use of Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP) in Southwest Alberta

GRAIP can predict which road segments and drainage features lead to greater risks of landslides, stream crossing plugging and reduced hydrologic connectivity.

Modelling the Impact of Forest Harvesting on the Flow Regime: Extending Experimental Data for Forest Planning Indicators in the Eastern Slopes
Project

Modelling the Impact of Forest Harvesting on the Flow Regime: Extending Experimental Data for Forest Planning Indicators in the Eastern Slopes

The project will apply a hydrological model to the Star Creek watershed in order to evaluate the effect of harvesting on key watershed processes and flood risks.

Watershed Resiliency and Restoration Program: East Slopes Riparian Assessment
Project

Watershed Resiliency and Restoration Program: East Slopes Riparian Assessment

This project will collect data and develop a tool to prioritize restoration in forested riparian areas for the Government of Alberta's WRRP.

Southern Rockies Hydrological Modelling
Project

Southern Rockies Hydrological Modelling

This project focuses on calibrating a hydrological model, called Raven, for forest planning.

Data Management and Innovative Support for Long-term Watershed Research: The Walt Jeffrey Project
Project

Data Management and Innovative Support for Long-term Watershed Research: The Walt Jeffrey Project

Named in honor of the "father of forest hydrology in Western Canada," this project seeks to capture the value of long-term research and data sets.

Review of the State of Riparian Knowledge and Tools
Project

Review of the State of Riparian Knowledge and Tools

This project will give an overview of what we know about managing riparian areas in Alberta and identify knowledge gaps.

Combining Field and LiDAR Modeling Tools to Move Beyond Indicator Based Approaches for Surface Erosion: Simonette as a Test Area for the Foothills Natural Region
Project

Combining Field and LiDAR Modeling Tools to Move Beyond Indicator Based Approaches for Surface Erosion: Simonette as a Test Area for the Foothills Natural Region

This project on riparian mapping aims to improve management and operational efficiency by capitalizing on the high quality remote sensing data available in Alberta.
