CBM in Action: Lake Winnipeg Foundation
April is Citizen Science Month - a great opportunity to celebrate water monitors from communities across Canada.
DataStream Publishes Open Data Standard to Support Water Science
The publication of an open data standard is enabling valuable freshwater data to be organized, accessed, and shared in a harmonized way. This data standard underpins DataStream, a growing online platform for sharing water data collected by Canada’s diverse water monitoring and research community.
CBM In Action: Lake Winnipeg Community-Based Monitoring Network
The Lake Winnipeg Community-Based Monitoring Network (LWCBMN) was launched in fall 2015. Supported by the Lake Winnipeg Foundation ’s Science Advisory Council, this growing network engages citizen volunteers to collect water samples across Manitoba using scientifically vetted protocols. Samples are then analyzed in a lab to measure phosphorus concentration and calculate the amount of phosphorus being exported off the landscape.
