  • Harnessing the power of volcanoes: The search for geothermal energy

    This journey begins with a helicopter ride to a remote volcanic zone on the West Coast of British Columbia — a site noted for potential eruptions, steaming vents and unpredictable weather. It’s all in a day’s work for this scientific team. They’re searching for a hard-to-find, yet promising, piece of the puzzle in our work against climate change: geothermal energy.

In Cape Bathurst, where Canada's mainland meets the Arctic Ocean, an entire coastline is burning. Aptly named the Smoking Hills, it's home to a really unique geological feature: a deposit of sedimentary rock that's been burning and smouldering continuously for thousands of years. On this episode, we'll be speaking with a research scientist who visited the hellish landscape to study it first-hand.
Research scientist Vicki Tschirhart and “professional rock crusher” Sarah Mount explain how scientists are determining the composition of the Earth’s mantle. Remember kids, science if FUNdamental!

Moth walls and Artificial Intelligence leads to a clear call to action

As experts tackle the effects of climate change on a global scale, what’s going on in your backyard? Take moths for example. Moth populations are rapidly declining in many parts of the world. Joe Bowden, an entomologist with the Canadian Forest Service, is taking notice and urges others to do the same. December 2022
There are, on average, over 4,000 earthquakes in Canada each year. Many of those earthquakes occur in Western Canada, but Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic Provinces also see their fair share of seismic events. On this episode, we’ll be speaking with a seismologist who has spent over 30 years studying earthquakes in Eastern Canada.
Kevin Brewer is a geophysical technologist responsible for building, designing and maintaining various pieces of equipment used in survey work. One of his designs, the microvibe, generates a frequency sweep that travels down into the ground and reflects back up. This microvibe allows the creation of detailed images of the ground very similar to an ultrasound.
