UNDERSTANDING CHANGE IN NATURAL AND HUMAN WATER SYSTEMS
Population growth, socio-economic activities and increasing effects of climate change have perturbed the elements of the water cycle across multiple temporal and spatial scales. Such changes can limit ecosystem and human livelihoods and endanger water security locally, regionally and globally.
The WSCC lab aims to provide innovative research solutions for diagnosing, describing and managing water security threats in Quebec, Canada and globally.
Key research questions for the WSCC lab include:
How can mathematical tools describe the changing behavior of water systems in light of current challenges and opportunities with the data support?
How can changing natural and human conditions impact water systems?
How can current and future water security threats be managed and communicated?
