The program carries out focused research on infestations of mountain pine beetle in Alberta.
Program & Project Involvement
This project will develop a tool for assessing how watersheds in the eastern slopes are affected by disturbance.
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.
Impacts of mountain pine beetle on hydrology and vegetative redevelopment in lodgepole pine forests of west-central Alberta: Phase II - Ecological responses in the grey attack stage
This project will examine hydrological and vegetation responses in the grey attack stage.
This project is part of the Southern Rockies Watershed Project aimed at understanding headwater processes and the hydrologic response to fire and forestry.
This project explores the 20 to 50-year implications of MPB rehabilitation on timber and non-timber values.
The groundwater/ surface water interactions in the headwater streams and the relative importance in controlling the hydrological response to disturbance
This project is part of the Southern Rockies Watershed Project.
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
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.
This project will collect data and develop a tool to prioritize restoration in forested riparian areas for the Government of Alberta's WRRP.
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.
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.
