Graduate Studies

The Forest Watershed Research Centre supports many students looking at pursuing graduate work (MScF and PhD) in watershed research. Topics range from watershed mapping, biomass modeling, and vegetation mapping by soil moisture, to mercury analysis and hydrology modeling. Any interested individual should contact the Center for more information.
