Forest Fires: Trends, Fire Risk Challenges, and Wildfire Smoke Prediction

British Columbia’s wildfires have impacted human, animal, and environmental health. In addition to the widely reported loss of life, homes, and natural habitats, the growing scale of wildfires are crippling many small-town economies and impacting sustainability. Canada’s 2021 fire season demonstrated that the occurrence, frequency, and behaviour of wildfires have changed. We will discuss this change, what we can expect in the future and how new research in remote sensing can help to predict regional smoke concentrations.

Dr. Marc-André Parisien (Canadian Forest Service) will discuss the features of the 2021 fire season and how climate change and the changing landscape is impacting fire patterns and characteristics.

Dr. Mojgan Mirzaei (Dept. of Geography, UofC) will drawing on the field of geography and show how new research in remote sensing can predict smoke concentrations and inform evacuation planning decisions.

As consumers wander through the grocery store purchasing their food items, they are faced with thousands of decisions. Today, as the quality and choice of goods in our food stores continues to increase, so does the complexity of our choices. 

This webinar will engage a panel of experts to help answer some of the most common consumer questions about one of Canada’s biggest agri-food products: beef. We will dispel some myths and bring some science and facts to the table and hopefully make your grocery shopping a little easier. We will also take you on a tour of a few parts of the complex beef industry supply chain.

This program is a collaboration of The School of Public Policy and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
