Presentation topics include remote sensing of lake levels and algal blooms, internal loading, salt pollution, aquatic invasive species, and eDNA. We encourage you to register for the presentations to receive timely updates and post-webinar follow-ups. Check out our website (https://alms.ca/2021-webinar-series/) to register.


Presentation: Monitoring Alberta’s Lakes: Citizen Science from Boats, Beaches, and Satellites.
When: 11:00 MDT, Friday September 24
Who: Caleb Sinn. Alberta Lake Management Society.
Bio: Caleb’s passion for freshwater ecology developed after spending many summers throughout his childhood at Gull Lake, exploring Alberta’s mountain national parks, and fishing in southern British Columbia. He graduated from the University of Alberta in 2019 with a B.Sc. double-major in Biology and Chemistry, and focused his studies specifically on community and freshwater ecology, environmental chemistry, and analytical chemistry. He also spent two years working on freshwater ecology projects ranging from mountain lake sampling to cyanobacteria monitoring and algal pigment analysis at the University of Alberta. Caleb will be presenting on ALMS’ 2020 season and plans for the future.
