Greg Dickson, B.A.

The objective of Greg’s research is to assess and evaluate a constructed fen near Fort McMurray, Alberta. Net primary production,evapotranspiration, and carbon and methane fluxes will be used to determine greenhouse gas emissions/sequestration and whether the constructed wetland is a functioning ecosystem. Additionally, this data will be used to discern which vegetation communities/species and planting methods are ideal for future
reclamation efforts in the Athabasca Oil Sands.
