June 2024: MB BRANCH WEBINAR SERIES: Evaluating agricultural best management practices for improving water quality under current and future climate conditions in the Red River Basin

 In Upcoming Event, Upcoming MB, Upcoming Online, Upcoming Webinars, Webinar-Member-2024

This is the seventh and final webinar in the 2023-2024 MB Branch webinar series.

Presenter: Alexis Nemeth, Engineering M.Sc. Student (Faculty of Civil Engineering, University of Manitoba)

Using a SWAT (Soil & Water Assessment Tool) hydrologic model of the Red River Basin (RRB), this work explores how select agricultural best management practices (BMPs) impact water quality in the Red River Basin and further analyzes how these impacts change under future climate conditions. Major reservoirs in the RRB are added to the SWAT model with the objective of improving model performance.
