SECURING the world’s water one drop at a time. John Pomeroy, a hydrology professor at the University of Saskatchewan and Canada Research Chair in Water Resources and Climate Change, studies the science behind the 2013 Alberta flooding. He explains, “Better scientific understanding of hydrology is leading to better preparedness for and prediction of droughts, floods and water supply changes, and improves our water security.” Pomeroy’s research could ultimately mitigate flood damage and save lives.
