Learn About Groundbreaking New Research Into Oil Spills at the World’s Freshwater Laboratory
On April 15, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at Lakehead University (Room: ATAC 1001), scientists will explain how we are rolling out the second stage of new groundbreaking research into the impact of oil spills on lakes and their shorelines—all taking place just six hours west of Thunder Bay at IISD Experimental Lakes Area, the world's freshwater laboratory.
Vince Palace, our head research scientist, will present the research and explain why we can always understand more about the impact of pipeline spills on bodies of fresh water. He will also explain how we are carrying out the research and what safety precautions we are taking.
Then we want to hear from you. We will open up the floor to hear questions, comments and concerns from any member of the public who attends.
See you there!
