About the LPC
The LPC is a laboratory of the Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics at the University of Ottawa (Ottawa, Ontario, Canada). We are involved in the analysis and modeling of climate changes and their impacts on ecosystems. These pages describe the people working in the laboratory, the projects in which we are involved, and the facilities available for research on environmental change.
The emphasis of our work is the analysis of the past (the fossil record) as a way to better understand the present and the future. Our lab is unique in that we combine work typically done by several specialist groups: the gathering and analysis of new paleoecological and paleolimnological data, especially from lake sediment cores, the statistical analysis of databases of environmental change, with an emphasis of spatial analysis, and the modeling of environmental processes. We are dealing with the analysis of many spatio-temporal scales of environmental change. One of the particular interests of the physical geographers in our department is in northern Canada and the Arctic and much of the new data we are collecting comes from this region.
Feel free to look over these pages, and use the programmes and data we are making available. We are continually adding new material. For any questions or if you would like to join us, do not hesitate to contact us.
