About The Event
About this event:
We are welcoming the winter (& New Year!) in the most CEP of ways - with a sustainability winter themed event! CEP Calgary is excited to two speakers - a recent traveller to the NW Passage - also a professor of geomorphology and GIS, and a researcher of carbon dioxide in the Arctic Ocean.
About our speakers:
Dr Lynn Moorman
Dr. Lynn Moorman is a Professor at Mount Royal University, in Calgary, Canada. She teaches geomorphology and GIS, and her research integrates both disciplines of education and geography, looking at geospatial literacy, geospatial cognition with Digital Earth, and the practice of geographic education. Lynn is a Governor and Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, the Postsecondary Representative for Canadian Geographic Education, and Task Force member of the International GeoOlympiad. She also works as a resource staff member for Adventure Canada in Canada’s Arctic, sharing knowledge and enthusiasm about geologic history and glacial landscapes while on expeditions in the Canadian Arctic.
Patrick is an MSc student at the University of Calgary investigating carbon dioxide in the Arctic Ocean. While completed a BSc Honours in Earth Science, Patrick was introduced to climate science as part of the collaborative ICE-CAMPS 2016 field campaign based out of the Canadian High Arctic Research Station in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut. Now in the second year of his master's program, Patrick has since been back to the Canadian Arctic to complete his own field work with plans to pursue a PhD in the field of oceanography.
