University of Guelph


The University of Guelph is known for its innovative research and student learning in a variety of different fields: water, food, environment, animal and human health, etc. The university focuses on creating a sense of responsibility to confront global issues within its community.

The Computing Research Laboratory for the Environment(CRLE), University of Guelph specializes in computer science which is used to understand and provide a solution to environmental problems. They assist in capacity building, research review and symposium organization on Environmental Information Sciences with possible adaptation by the Lake Winnipeg Basin Initiative Information Portal.

CLRE has created applications of up-to-date technologies on computing and information sciences to environmental problems. Examples include development of artificial neural network software to fill data gaps, artificial intelligence methods for acid rain integrated assessment models, probabilistic network model approximation for multi-model integration for watershed studies, and the automation of land-use scenario and map generation for integrated land-lake modelling studies. It has also conducted research on automating the calibration and the uncertainty estimation in integrative environmental models for land-lake systems, using of genetic algorithms, parallel computing, distributed computer networks and servers, common and interoperable data formats for environmental data and models using computer networks.
