IP3 aims to make tangible contributions to cold-regions hydrology, in the form of contributions to theoretical academic understanding, innovative software for research and operational use, and information relevant to the scientific community and the broader public audience.
The network's outputs include...
Peer-reviewed papers in journals, conference presentations, posters and other
manifestations of IP3 science have been prepared and delivered by the majority
of the network's participants, from post-graduate (and some under-graduate)
students, through post-doctoral fellows to those of professorial rank. Details
are provided here.
The software written to encapsulate the results of studies into processes and
subsequent parameterisation provides the third 'P' of the network's title,
prediction. These products are now in use, both to advance ongoing research and
to contribute to the operational management of water resources. Descriptions of
IP3 models are provided here.
Under the terms of IP3 funding agreement with CFCAS, the network has a duty to
publish data gathered during the course of its activity into a permanent legacy
archive, available for use by the scientific community at large. This archive is
being implemented and populated in Year 4 (2010): details are provided
Outreach and Education
There is also a duty to share the results of our science with the broader
public, in a variety of styles and formats, as appropriate to the nature and
interests of the audiences involved. IP3 has published an enormous amount of
information, ranging from presentations to school, community and specific
environmental-interest groups, to engagements with federal and provincial
governments, to insight sessions with businesses interested in water resources,
to tourists visiting the National Parks. Much of this information is available
for download from this site, starting here.
