Science Talks: Climate change on Canada's highest peak

In May of this year, ice core scientist Alison Criscitiello and her team drilled a record-breaking 327m high-altitude ice core on Mount Logan's brutal summit plateau. She and her team climbed Logan and then spent two weeks on the plateau drilling what may be the longest climate record in the North Pacific, and the oldest non-polar ice on earth. The geography and conditions of Logan's high plateau offer what is generally only possible at the poles: tens of thousands of years worth of climate data — critical to understanding past climate trends so we can predict future change.

Science Talks: Software Development - Building Better Code through Reuse

We depend on software systems in almost every aspect of our daily lives, with the hope that these systems do what they are supposed to do. Creating this software is complicated — what software libraries do we use, and how do we ensure code is free of defects? Join Sarah Nadi, assistant professor in the Department of Computing Science and Canada Research Chair in Software Reuse to learn key aspects of how software is developed and how innovative techniques using software tracing data are helping software developers create better, more reliable software to benefit us all.

Science Talks: Rural Sustainability in Alberta
Economic and environmental challenges drive change in our rural communities — some are booming, others growing concerned about their viability. How can Alberta towns protect the agricultural lands that surround them and still balance the economic growth that expands their populations? Bob Summers, academic director of the School of Urban and Regional Planning in the Faculty of Science, will share his research in these areas, and the local and provincial strategies that could help communities to address these challenges.
