This presentation will explore climate change and flow regulation impacts on daily and annual river discharge variations and trends into Hudson Bay, the Nechako and Fraser River Basins over the past half-century or so. The first part of the talk will focus on the 3.7 million km2 Hudson Bay drainage basin for which daily observed streamflow data from the Water Survey of Canada, Manitoba Hydro, Ontario Power Generation and Hydro-Québec for 21 rivers are used in the analyses spanning 1960-2016.

Natural gas is the source of one-quarter of the British Columbia’s greenhouse gas emissions. But there is another way to generate this energy that could provide substantial emissions reductions: renewable natural gas (RNG), derived from diverse organic waste sources.

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.

Globally, renewable power and electric vehicle technology is evolving rapidly. As these technologies are adopted, they promise to reshape the face of energy and mobility in cities. Join us for a conversation with Ethan Zindler, Head of Americas for Bloomberg New Energy Finance, as we discuss the trends and economics driving the renewable energy transition.
