Wetland Classification & Monitoring
Wetlands are known to provide integral environmental services, including contaminant filtering and improving water quality, and flood mitigation. They are also sensitive to oil and gas developments, due to the fragile peatlands and hydrological systems. Wetland Classification, wetland evaluation, wetlands monitoring is becoming increasingly important in the province of Alberta to protect these critical yet sensitive ecosystems.
