Research

Posted on 13 February 2014

A new geovisualization tool created by researchers at the University of Prince Edward Island (UPEI) and Simon Fraser University (SFU) demonstrates the effects of erosion and sea-level rise on Prince Edward Island’s coastline and the potential vulnerable areas in the future. The tool, Coastal Impact Visualization Environment, or CLIVE, is a collaborative research initiative connecting UPEI’s Climate Research Lab with SFU’s Spatial Interface Research Lab.

Events

At the next Research on Tap, join us for a discussion about the bloody history of free blood in Canada. Dr. Sarah Glassford, assistant professor of History at UPEI, will lead a discussion entitled "Blood: It's in you to sell. Why Canadians give and get blood for free." The discussion begins at 7 pm on Tuesday, April 8 at the Pourhouse, above The Old Triangle Irish Alehouse in Charlottetown.

In other countries, blood is treated as a commodity, where donors are paid, and blood has cash value. Dr. Glassford will present on the debate that led to our free system, and how Canada almost followed the American model.

Sound interesting? Join us!

Research on Tap is a series of public discussions with UPEI researchers. For more information, contact Dave Atkinson at (902)620-5117 or datkinson@upei.ca.
