Impacts of stray gas migration on shallow groundwater: insights from laboratory experiments and numerical modelling

2017/18-2019/20 • $537,475 • PI,CO
The combination of horizontal drilling and multi-stage hydraulic fracturing has created a significant shift in global energy production, increasing the use and availability of natural gas through new technologies that allow the extraction of gas from previously inaccessible formations....

Les aquifères, une infrastructure naturelle pour le refroidissement écoénergétique

2018/19-2019/20 • $360,500 • PI,CO
Les technologies conventionnelles de climatisation des bâtiments rejettent d'importantes quantités de chaleur*dans l'air et contribuent aux îlots de chaleur urbains. Les aquifères, qui sont des formations géologiques*perméables où y circule l'eau souterraine, constituent une infrastructure...

Numerical modelling of complex hydrogeosystems

2019/20 • $36,000 • PI
My 2018 NSERC Discovery Grant proposal focuses on development and application of numerical simulation models to gain insight into complex hydrogeosystems, within the context of protection and sustainable development of groundwater resources.******The objectives are based on three complimentary...

Quantitative Hydrogeology of Fractured Porous Media

2013/14-2018/19 • $500,000 • PI
Canada has some of the world's most abundant groundwater resources which are critical for drinking water and industrial use, and for maintaining ecosystems and stream flow. These resources are being threatened by over-exploitation, contamination and climate change. Some of the most complex...

Numerical modelling of integrated hydrogeological systems in complex porous and fractured media

2014/15-2018/19 • $185,000 • PI
Canada has some of the world's most abundant groundwater resources which are critical for drinking water, agricultural and industrial use, and for maintaining ecosystems and stream flow. These resources are being threatened by over-exploitation, contamination and climate change. Some of the most...

INGÉOPRO: Développement de modèles avancés pour l'ingénierie de la production de la puissance à partir de la géothermie profonde

2015/16-2016/17 • $169,000 • PI,CO
La production de puissance électrique à partir de ressources géothermiques est en forte croissance partout dans le monde. Elle est principalement faite à partir de sources hydrothermales dans des milieux géologiques volcaniques où on retrouve de la vapeur d'eau ou de l'eau surchauffée en grande...

Evaluation and optimization of in situ chemical oxidation for groundwater remediation

2012/13-2015/16 • $930,652 • PI,CO
Groundwater is an immensely important and conditionally renewable natural resource that is used as a supply for domestic and agricultural consumption and sustains a physical and chemical balance with the surface water system. Contamination caused by a wide spectrum of hazardous organic compounds...

Groundwater resources evolution in degrading permafrost environments: Sustainable water availability and management in the northern community of Umiujaq, Nunavik, Canada

2013/14-2015/16 • $530,166 • PI,CO
Canada's climate is changing and the resulting impact on the water cycle and on water resources is of critical importance to human and ecosystem health and for economic development, especially in the north. Many effects are already being felt in northern communities, including thawing of...

Facteurs d'influence sur la prédiction de la qualité des eaux de drainage de rejets miniers séquestreurs de carbone : cas du projet Dumont de la compagnie Royal Nickel Corporation

2012/13-2015/16 • $305,600 • PI,CO
La génération de drainage neutre contaminé (DNC) est une problématique à laquelle est confrontée l'industrie minière canadienne et internationale. Le DNC est défini comme les eaux de drainage dont le pH est près de la neutralité mais contenant des teneurs en métaux dépassant les normes...
