Coldwater Laboratory

The Coldwater Laboratory in Canmore consists of 23 water and climate researchers who have gathered in Canmore from around to world to develop solutions to freshwater problems and to help reduce the risk of these problems in a time of climate change. The “Lab” is both an office building where researchers analyse large datasets, run computer models to simulate streamflow generation, snowmelt and glacier retreat and the hub of a large mountain hydrology and climate observation program that is focused on the Bow River Basin. The Coldwater Lab is led by Professors John Pomeroy and Martyn Clark.
