Transformative Science

In December 2017, Global Water Futures announced funding for 21 projects across Canada that aim to predict Canada’s future hydrology and support decision-making.

These 21 research projects are advancing the understanding, diagnosing and prediction of water and climate changes, and developing new decision-support systems using cutting-edge technologies including big-data, drone, sensor, and computer simulation modeling.
