Talks at Bishop’s University & Dawson College

Recently, I gave 2 talks on my research activities with some information on statistics and data analysis (at Bishop’s University: 01 Mar 2012 & Dawson College:¬†07 Mar 2012) for environmental analytical projects. It’s been fun and there was a lot of discussion with students during and after the talk.

Among other things I explained, why chemists typically measure samples 3 times (hint: check the t-table) and what things to consider, before going sampling (representativity, homogeneity and stability). All this, in the (practical) context of snow sampling from surfaces and pits during my field research in Alert, NU and Barrow, AK.
