On the 21st of April, Karine Rioux presented the main part of her honors bachelor project. Her presentation was part of the GeoForum 2017 of the Geography department (University of Montreal). Her project consists in evaluating the efficiency of a mitigation technique; the use of snowsheds to increase the thermal stability of permafrost along an experimental section of the Alaska Highway (Yukon). Karine skillfully demonstrated thermal dynamics of the air and the firsts centimeters of permafrost under the snowsheds, compared with a test section. Her good work and communicating skills won her the prize of the best honors presentation in physical geography! Congratulations Karine!
