The Department of Geography welcomed Professor Emeritus Ming-ko Woo
from the School of Geography and Earth Sciences, McMaster University. His talk is entitled Modern Myths in Northern Science, and was delivered at York University Monday, February 6, 2012.

BIO: Professor Woo's research has focused on understanding the principles of catchment, hillslope and wetland hydrology as well as assessing changes in hydrological systems by environmental stressors such as climate variability and human modification to the landscape. More recently, he was the program leader of the MAGS project that studied how climate change and variability affects ice and snow dynamics and water resources in the Mackenzie River Basin.

Professor Woo is known first and foremost for his contributions to cold region hydrology. Much of his research took place near Resolute, NWT, where a river now officially bears the name McMaster River.
