From plains to moraines...
The research happening across the Boreal Shield is important to urban and rural source water quality & treatment
Location: Ontario & Québec
Importance: The landscape here includes a mixture of ecological regimes, from areas of relatively low elevation change to mountainous terrains, each with unique species and implications for one of the most populous regions of Canada.
Disturbances: Wildfires and insect attacks
Elucidate the immediate (1–3 year) and long-term (15+ year) legacy effects of forest harvesting and management on drinking water treatability, especially DOC and DBP-FP in streams in these landscapes
Evaluate modeling tools for estimating DBP-FP response to forest management in high- and low-relief Boreal Shield landscapes
