Carleton homepage


The Carleton University homepage currently features an article on Climate Change at Carleton. The article stresses the interdisciplinary nature of climate change research here, with contributing departments ranging from Earth Sciences to Journalism. 

Professors Chris Burn and Stephan Gruber, both of the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, feature prominently in the article. They are labelled as two of the most important climate change researchers at Carleton. 

Both of these faculty members are affiliated with our department through their membership in the Ottawa-Carleton Geoscience Centre. The complete list of members includes a total of seven faculty members from Carleton's Department of Geography and Environmental Studies.
