QE3 at SETAC Toronto

Graduate students from QE3 attended the North America Annual Meeting for the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC).
In the session on Fate, Effects, Mitigation and Monitoring of Oil and Oilfield Wastewater Spills in Freshwater Ecosystems, Johanna Mason presented her MES work, “Dilbit for dinner: Using stable isotope analysis to trace carbon from a diluted bitumen spill into the aquatic food web.”

Jeff Cederwall followed with his presentation on “The stimulation of freshwater phytoplankton communities following experimental diluted bitumen spills in a boreal lake.”

Eden Hataley included a poster titled “Can microplastics act as a medium to concentrate waterborne microcystin?”

Students report their talks were well-attended and the conference was a great opportunity to connect with old and new acquaintances.
