Researchers, students from UBCO, TRU, UNBC team up to protect BC’s forested watersheds 

May 10, 2019

Communities across British Columbia have faced a growing number of emergencies related to its forest watersheds, which is why a multi-university initiative is helping researchers explore the impacts of these forest disturbances. The Disaster Prevention, Response, Recovery and Resilience (Disaster PR3) fund, which is a new initiative from the Interior University Research Coalition (IURC), will see faculty and students from UBC’s Okanagan campus, Thompson Rivers University, and the University of Northern British Columbia—which together make up the IURC—collaborate on three research projects that will examine natural disturbances and their impacts on various watershed processes in forests, hillside slopes, and crown land. UBCO (BC)
