Earlier this month, CGU member Merrin Macrae, Associate Professor at the University of Waterloo, was interviewed by the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. She talked about her research on the movement of phosphorous from agricultural fields into waterways, and how it depends on the management technique used on those fields. Merrin is the President of the CGU’s Biogeosciences Section.

She is studying the missing roots of the Andes mountains, the formation of which she describes as ‘enigmatic.’ Claire is an Associate Professor of Geophysics at the University of Alberta, and is also the Secretary of the CGU’s Solid Earth Section.
