Brandon Van Huizen, B.Sc.


Brandon received his undergraduate degree from Brock University in Physical Geography. His current research focuses on the eco-hydrological role of seasonal ground ice in natural and constructed fens. Specifically, he is working to identify patterns in the spatial distribution of seasonal ground ice in both natural and constructed fens and determine how they relate to peat land micro-topography and vegetation cover. He also is working to quantify the impacts seasonal ice lenses have on evapotranspiration fluxes within constructed and natural fens.
