June the time for fieldwork

The month of June was busy with hosting Anders Eekland from Airborne Hydrography from Sweden and Bill Kidman from leading Edge Geomatics in Halifax where we discussed bathymetric lidar. As my role as the Chair of the Nova Scotia Branch of the Canadian Institute of Geomatics I hosted the participants of the Atlantic Association of Planning Technicians at their annual workshop at COGS. Kevin McGuigan and I headed to Bridgewater where I presented the results of our hydrodynamic modelling and flood risk project for the town to town council at their monthly meeting. The project was well received and was reported in the local media. I headed back to PEI mid-month to present on our Salt March Migration in PEI project at the Canadian Heritage Rivers Conference. I emphasized the Hillsborough River in the talk which is a heritage river. The team of myself, Candace MacDonald, Nathan Parker, Nathan Getchell, and Garret Gaudet headed to Indian Brook to install a weather station and pressure sensor in a stream to measure the water level in anticipation of a new project related to flood risk and climate change that we are partnering with Mi'kma'ki All Points Services (MAPS) for this project.
