  • Calculating ‘old’ and ‘new’ water runoff

    Just ahead of a rainstorm, Cody Ross might run out to an agricultural research site as part of his graduate work. He’ll need to get some dye into an injection well. The point? To evaluate the path that water follows from the field during and after the rainstorm. Ross, a member of the Watershed Systems Research Program at the University of Manitoba, is measuring water flow in a part of ...
