Join the TSE for our 2019-2020 Seminar Series!
The Trent School of the Environment Seminar Series is a casual way to meet colleagues, professors, and guest speakers, and to learn about ongoing research and issues related to the environment.
All sessions are hosted from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm in Geography Lab ESC C205 (across from the TSE main office).
Fall 2019 Seminar Series Schedule
Wednesday October 2
Ryan Sorichetti | The Multi-Watershed Nutrient Study: Assessing the Scope for Change in Agricultural Nutrient Loading
Senior Surface Water Scientist and Lead of the Multi-Watershed Nutrient Study at the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks
Ryan’s team explores relationships among land use, land management and nutrient export in agricultural streams in southern Ontario and how these relationships may have changed over the past 50 years.
Wednesday November 6
Eric Grunsky | Multivariate Analytics applied to Geochemical Survey Data for Process Discovery and Prediction and its uses in Geologic Mapping and Mineral Exploration
Adjunct Professor at the University of Waterloo, Canada; Secretary General for the International Association for Mathematical Geosciences; Editor-in-Chief for the Elsevier Open Access journal, Applied Computing & Geosciences and on the Advisory Board of the Metal Earth Project. Editor-in-Chief for the IAMG journal, Computers & Geosciences, from 2006-2011.
He holds B.Sc and M.Sc degrees from the University of Toronto and a Ph.D. from the University of Ottawa. He is also a member of the Association of Applied Geochemists [AAG], the Geochemical Society and a registered Professional Geoscientists (P.Geo.) in the province of British Columbia, Canada. His career has included field mapping and research at the Geological Survey of Canada, Ottawa, the Division of Exploration and Mining, CSIRO, Australia, the Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario provincial geological surveys. Eric is known for his research in the application of multivariate statistical methods and spatial statistics applied to geochemical data and their use in mineral exploration, predictive geological mapping and predictive resource assessment. In 2005, he received the IAMG Felix Chayes Medal for Excellence in Research in Statistical Petrology. In 2012 he was awarded the IAMG Krumbein Medal and was the IAMG Distinguished Lecturer in 2014.
Wednesday December 4
Anna Harrison | Probing the Links Between Water Availability and Mineral Reactivity
Assistant Professor, Department of Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering/ School of Environmental Studies at Queen’s University. Queen’s National Scholar in Environmental Geochemistry
Anna is an aqueous environmental geochemist and is currently cross-appointed between Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering and the School of Environmental Studies at Queen’s University. Anna is the Queen’s National Scholar in Environmental Geochemistry. She received her BSc from the University of Alberta and PhD from the University of British Columbia. She was a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, USA, Geoscience Environment Toulouse (a part of the CNRS in Toulouse, France), and a Marie Slodowksa-Curie Independent Research Fellow at University College London, UK. Her research focuses on mechanisms of fluid-mineral-gas interactions and the implications for environmental issues such as carbon capture and storage.
