All Projects:

Specific Project:

Shortcodes:

The following shortcodes have been setup for use in standard pages.

Shortcodes can be used almost anywhere, though note that the space after the opening [ and the space before the closing ] need removed for the shortcode to work.

Spaces have been added for the purposes of illustrating the required shortcode and, without these, the shortcode would return its actual display.

Uses shortcode [ projects-list ] (with no spaces after opening [ and before closing ])

Professor David McMullan, Dept of Chemistry, Carleton University, Ottawa.  Tim and David will provide training in sediment-based microcystin analysis and End Member Mixing analysis – specialist techniques that have great potential in cyano-impacted lakes.  We have budgeted for a 3-4 wk visit to Canada/Carleton in Year 1 where the student will learn these techniques.  Further support will be provided remotely.
