A Brock University researcher is still on the hunt for photographs of Lincoln’s Lake Ontario shoreline.
Sustainability and Society master’s student Meredith DeCock is calling on the public to submit photos of the shoreline and surrounding area as part of a research project to determine how the area has changed over time and the role climate change has played in its evolution. The photos will be used to recreate the coast through time and identify what caused its greatest impacts.
The study was made possible by the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship, which she received from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
For DeCock’s study, photos from any year that show any segment of the Lincoln shoreline, its surrounding environment and development, as well as destruction due to high water levels, are needed. The submission deadline has now been extended to Oct. 31.
