CSHS Kananaskis Short Course on Principles of Hydrology

The Canadian Society for Hydrological Sciences and University of Saskatchewan Centre for Hydrology offers an intensive course on the physical principles of hydrology with relevance to Canadian conditions. The course is led by Dr. John Pomeroy, Canada Research Chair in Water Resources & Climate Change, and taught by Dr. Pomeroy and a team of subject-matter experts. The course takes place at the University of Calgary’s Biogeoscience Institute’s Barrier Lake Station in the Kananaskis Valley.

The course will focus on classroom instruction but will take advantage of the proximity to the Marmot Creek Research Basin and the Canadian Rockies Hydrological Observatory to expose students to cold regions hydrological phenomenon, state of the art field instrumentation and measurement techniques.

  • Snow Accumulation and Redistribution;
  • Snowmelt and Snowcover Depletion;
  • Glaciers & River Ice Formation;
  • Groundwater Hydrology;
  • Infiltration & Soil Water;
