My undergraduate courses link climate science with physical hydrology and plant biology, with a particular emphasis on northern environments. SC/GEOG 2400 The Hydrosphere; SC/GEOG 4205 Climates of High Latitudes; SC/GEOG 4210 Hydrometeorology; SC/GEOG 4215 Ecological Climatology. For the past three decades, graduate students have driven my northern field research program which focuses on the water balance and greenhouse gas exchange from the peatlands and ponds in the Hudson Bay Lowlands based out of the Churchill Northern Studies Centre in Churchill Manitoba. In collaboration with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority graduate students and I maintain four flux stations within the City of Toronto where we examine climate change effects on evaporation and the potential for wind derived electrical energy production.
