Alberta Agriculture and Forestry Workshop: Wet Areas Mapping Initiative Year Ten

March 17, 2016 - 2:00pm to 10:00pm

Towards the Goal of Environmental Excellence: Alberta’s Wet Areas Mapping Initiative at Year Ten

Alberta’s wet areas mapping initiative was initiated in 2005 and has made positive contributions to land and forest management. During this ten year time period, the wet areas mapping model has undergone a significant transformation to address complex challenges of mapping lands within the boreal forest. New spin-off modelling tools have also become an operational reality. A new understanding of moisture distributions on the forested landscape at high resolutions has spurred new scientific studies in the field of ecology, growth and yield and reclamation. This scientific symposium will report on a decade of innovation.

There is no cost to attend this workshop but space is limited; early registration is strongly encouraged. In lieu of registration fees we will be accepting food donations at the door for the Edmonton Food Bank.
