More Equitable Climate Change Adaptation Strategies in a More-Than-Human World

November 17, 2017 - 3:30pm

Climate change is a threat to ecosystems and human communities across the globe. Some climate change adaptation strategies have the potential to generate additional risks and vulnerabilities (e.g., geoengineering, desalination). However, instead of taking the proverbial political ecology ‘hatchet’ to critique these strategies, this talk focuses on the ‘seeds’ of more equitable adaptations that account for the needs of the human and more-than-human world.

Regional frequency analysis of hydro-meteorlogical extremes-non standard aspects

October 25, 2017 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Regional frequency analysis (RFA) of hydro-meteorological variables is a commonly used tool to provide quantile estimates of extreme events at ungauged sites. Given the high complexity of hydro-meteorological processes, it is worthwhile to account for the possible nonlinear connections between hydro-meteorological variables and catchments characteristics in all RFA steps. Moreover, to provide relatively reliable quantiles estimates, it is often recommended to only consider sites with sufficiently long data series which lead to ignoring a considerable part of the available information.

Scenario Based Simulation of Energy and Emissions at a Neighbourhood Scale

October 25, 2017 - 9:30am

PICS' Energy Efficiency in the Built Environment (EEBE) project of thei is a five-year interdisciplinary research initiative to reduce energy and emissions intensities across the diverse 162 municipalities of BC. Crucial research challenges have been the heterogenous nature of these municipalities of different sizes, densities and development patterns and, the complexity of variables and interactions that contribute to energy and emissions performance.
