Micrometeorologists study surface-atmosphere exchange at time scales ranging from fractions of seconds through inter-annual and spatial scales on the order of 100-1000’s of meters. The research conducted at McGill is field-based, observational and process driven; it focuses on the transfers of greenhouse gases, water and heat driven by near-surface turbulent exchange from a variety of natural and human-influenced ecosystems. Students can study towards both M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. Collaboration exists with colleagues in other McGill Departments as well as other University, Government and Private partners.
STRACHAN, Ian B. – Associate Professor (cross-appointed to Geography) and Graduate Program Director. Dr. Strachan conducts field-based micrometeorological research centred on the ways in which human-induced management and modification of ecosystems influences surface– atmosphere interactions. Dr. Strachan is currently interested in carbon exchange in marsh wetlands, boreal hydroelectric reservoirs and coastal peatlands, as well as energy and carbon exchanges in rural and urban settings in and around Montreal.
