Research in our lab revolves around an interest in understanding and modeling the hydrology and biogeochemistry of human-impacted systems in the Anthropocene
The Basu Lab at Waterloo is a diverse group of researchers utilizing tools from environmental science, engineering and the social sciences to explore water-related issues integral to the functioning of human-impacted systems. As part of our research, we ask the following types of questions:
11 Dec 2017: Register for our AGU Fall Meeting session (H148) on legacies in the landscape titled: "Yesterday is History, The Future is a Mystery: Legacy Effects of Land Use on Water Quality".
26 June 2017: Fred published his first paper on small water bodies as biogeochemical hotspots in the landscape! Read the paper here.
25 June 2017: Fred and Nandita heads off to Lewiston, Maine for the Gordon Research Conference on Catchment Sciences.
June 2017: Kickoff meetings abound for our SPG and LEAP projects at the GRCA in Cambridge with our stakeholders as well as in Coimbra, Portugal with our international partners. Find out more at the project pages.
14 June 2017: A well deserved W.B. Pearson Medal goes to Kim in recognition of creative research in a PhD thesis from the Faculty of Science.
8 June 2017: The Lake Futures project has been funded! As the PI, Nandita will be looking at how to enhance the adaptive capacity and resilience of lakes and their watersheds. This project is part of the larger Global Water Futures project - more information can be found about Lake Futures can be found here. We are also looking for students and postdocs!
30 May 2017: Idhaya gives a talk about modelling nitrogen legacies in the landscape with SWAT at CGU in Vancouver.
17-18 May 2017: Kim and Nandita chaired a session at IAGLR 2017 titled "Nutrient sources, transport and retention across scales: measurement, modeling and management" in Detroit filled with two days of great talks.
1 May 2017: Welcome to the research group Alex! We're excited to have you start here as a grad student!
13 April 2017: Good job Fred for completing your MASc seminar!
12 April 2017: Congrats Tejasvi for passing your PhD comprehensive exam!
6 April 2017: Our nutrient legacies research is going global with the funding for LEAP! See the news release from the Water Institute here and available positions for the project.
March 2017: Congrats Kim for receiving the "Best early career article of 2016" award in Environmental Research Letters for your paper "The nitrogen legacy: Emerging evidence of nitrogen accumulation in anthropogenic landscapes"!
