Prof assessing impacts of climate change on water resources

If we want to mitigate the effects of climate change on waterways, we’ll need to change our own ways, says Tirupati Bolisetti.

A professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, he integrates socio-economic factors into water management models and adaptation strategies from the Great Lakes to the Arctic. Challenges addressed in his research range from urban flooding to quality and quantity of drinking water supply.

Dr. Bolisetti is currently collaborating with the hamlet of Pangnirtung on Baffin Island to assess its drinking water supply’s reliability, develop a hydrological profile of the river, and investigate the watershed’s snowpack and flood vulnerability.
