Rethinking how we plan forests and green spaces

Rethinking how we plan forests and green spaces

Canada has long been a global leader in conserving and restoring forests. Now, a collaborative team that includes scientists from the Canadian Forest Service (CFS) continues the tradition by taking the lead in adapting new technology to help plan forests and optimize their many benefits to our quality of life. Meet PlantR, an online platform designed for a diverse future. September 2022
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.
During the 1980s, Canadian scientists conducted research on an island made of ice in the Arctic Ocean. We reached out to two scientists, Peta Mudie and David Mosher, to discuss their experience working on this ice island more than 30 years ago.

Taking stock of Canada’s forests

For the first time, new detailed ground plot data on Canada’s forests will be available annually — but what can it tell us about forest resources, biodiversity and the impacts of climate change? September 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.
Are all electric vehicles truly green? How reliable are they, really? How do you charge them? What’s the difference between an EV and a ZEV? Join Simply Science producer Joel Houle as he learns more about electric vehicles (EVs) and other zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) with his friend — and noted ZEV expert — Yves Madore. In the first episode of series, Yves takes Joel to a Transport Canada facility and shows him how ZEVs differ from conventional gas-powered vehicles. They look under the hood, go under the hoist and even get behind the wheel to take an EV out for a spin. Will Yves be brave enough to let Joel drive his car? Watch the video to find out!
