The Impact of Road Salts on our Freshwaters

September 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT


This year ALMS is hosting a webinar series to learn from experts from across North America on various lake related topics! This series will showcase presentations every Friday morning from September 10 to October 1. 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.

PresentationThe Impact of Road Salts on our Freshwaters
When: 11:00 MDT, Friday September 10
WhoDr. Hilary Dugan. University of Wisconsin.
BioDr. Hilary Dugan is an assistant professor at the Center for Limnology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. As a limnologist, Hilary studies how terrestrial and atmospheric changes, such as warming air temperatures or land use patterns, alter biogeochemical fluxes and aquatic processes in lakes. Her research balances field-based programs, which rely heavily on sensor networks, with the use and development of analytical models, and the application of geophysical and geospatial tools. Her research focus is on temperate and polar lakes, with sites spanning from Wisconsin to Antarctica.
