Seasonal glacier mass balance from airborne laser altimetry, Columbia River Basin, Canada

March 20, 2018 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Reliable estimates of glacier mass balance allow insight into the meteorological drivers of glacier change, but financial and logistical limitations restrict field-based measurements to only a small number of the world’s glaciers. In southwestern Canada, frequent cloud cover and small glacier size also preclude the measurement of seasonal mass change from space. Here, we describe our ongoing research program employing airborne laser altimetry to estimate surface mass balance for six alpine glaciers in the Columbia Basin.

British Columbia's climate plan and the urban opportunity

February 9, 2018 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

A conversation with the Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy

When British Columbia laid out its first climate plan a decade ago, it set a precedent, embracing local governments to drive greenhouse gas reductions. As North America’s first jurisdiction to require community-level emissions targets, B.C. influenced other climate leaders, such as California, Ontario, and Oregon.

Today, ten years later, greenhouse gas emissions in the B.C. are virtually unchanged. The province and most local governments are not on track to meet their targets.
