GPro Talks

The GPro talk series is a weekly webinar allowing attendees to learn about specific topics related to environmental sciences. Each talk is lead by our senior specialists who’ve spent years in the field gathering experience and knowledge.

Make sure you sign up for the webinars, even if you can’t attend the live sessions, the replays are online for 48 hours post webinar!

Past talks are available to purchase individually or through all access memberships.

GeoEnviroPro Talks  will be held every Wednesday at 10 am PST. The topics will be announced a week in advance. We have combined experience with every aspect of practice – from the excavator to the courtroom – and have been involved throughout the evolution of the contaminated field science and regulations in BC. Now distilled freely into 30 minute chunks. These sessions are FREE!

After 35+ years of site investigations and cleanup, we’ve seen a few things out there…and it’s time to share!!

    Conceptual and Visual Understanding of Hydraulic Head and Groundwater Flow A Learning Module of The Groundwater Projectkeyboard_arrow_down

    Join Andrew J.B. Cohen, PhD, environmental consultant and Adjunct Professor of Contaminant Hydrogeology at New Jersey Institute of Technology for GeoPro Talks on September 16, 20 at 10 am PT.This talk presents an introduction to a learning module available as part of a global initiative called The Groundwater Project ( The most fundamental underpinnings of groundwater science, namely hydraulic head and Darcy’s law, although simple in mathematical form, are often challenging to conceptualize and visualize, which are essential skills needed to interpret hydrogeologic data. Numerous sketches that relate hydraulic head and geologic properties to various flow scenarios are presented, and exercises are presented that require contemplation and integration of concepts, not solving equations.

    RemChlor-MD to support delineation of old PCE impacted Groundwaterkeyboard_arrow_down

    RemChlor-MD process to be an efficient tool to support delineation of old PCE plumes particularly in vertical dimension. RemChlor-MD allows for efficient modeling of layered and heterogeneous systems, and rock systems with parallel fractures and matrix diffusion in aquitards. In this webinar, a short introduction to RemChlor-MD is presented along with a case study where an old PCE plume is simulated.

    Functional Bioassay Platform for Environmental Monitoringkeyboard_arrow_down

    Caro Analytical services in collaboration with the University of Alberta have developed an analysis that focuses on the cumulative effect of a water source on aquatic life regardless of the complexity of the contaminating mixture. Monitoring an immune response through gene expression allows one to identify stress on a species well before exposure becomes fatal or leads to irreversible effects.The results outlined in this presentation have potential to provide cost-effective methodology for routine and continued monitoring of sites pre-, during, and post-remediation. Bioanalytical end-points will play a large role in our industry moving forward as current analytical methods struggle to stay relevant with a continuously growing list of contaminants of concern. The potential for this technology from both a regulatory and risk-assessment side is immense allowing for simple base lining of an environment while removing uncertainty in scope and ultimately replacing post-contamination sampling programs. This presentation will detail the successes to date and real world applications for this new line of testing with a focus on benefits for stakeholders.

    The Basics of Lidar (Light Detection and Ranging)keyboard_arrow_down

    Lidar (light detection and ranging) is a laser-based remote sensing technology.  From airborne or ground based platforms, it can be used to collect information about features on the surface of the Earth or in the atmosphere.  These data can be used to create three dimensional representations and provide precise location.This presentation will go over how Lidar works, and real-world research applications being conducted by the Selkirk Geospatial Research Centre (SGRC)

Conceptual Site Model – Introduction


Why are we doing this?

The objective of GeoEnviroPro Talks is to further support the application of solid environmental science in the real world, and to introduce new concepts to solve old problems. We want to build a community of contaminated site practitioners and look forward to helping you on your professional journey.

Some of BC’s most experienced remediation practitioners, including Dr. Reidar Zapf-Gilje and Hydrogeologist Guy Patrick, are pulling together over 104 years of cumulative experience to have some frank, honest, focused talks on critical issues to practicing professionals today.

We’ll spend ½ hour each week presenting and discussing important and interesting topics with you – topics relevant to environmental professionals. New technical tools (and some old ones!), regulatory issues, case studies, remediation, emerging (and emerged!) contaminants, and risk assessment. We promise to include time for dialogue and questions.
