Andrée Blais-Stevens

Andrée obtained her BSc in geology from the University of Ottawa and her MSc and PhD in Earth sciences from Carleton University. She has been working for the Geological Survey of Canada since 1993 as a research scientist. During her MSc and since hired by the GSC, she developed expertise in Quaternary glacial geology mapping for southern Québec, southern Prairies (Saskatchewan and Manitoba), central and southwestern British Columbia. For her PhD and later as a GSC scientist, she studied the sedimentology of Saanich Inlet, BC (Ocean Drilling Program Leg 169S), which included submarine landslides that are linked to past earthquake events. She also managed the Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Research Network on landscape hazards office (C-CIARN LH) based at the GSC. A network designed to bring scientists and decision-makers together on issues related to climate change and its impacts on the landscape. She is presently mapping the surficial geology and landslide inventory of the Sea to Sky corridor from Vancouver to Pemberton. She is also studying landslides and their triggers in northern and central BC with provincial colleagues. She has varied interests in Earth sciences such as, paleoseismology, landslide-generated tsunamis, impacts of climate change on landslides, and Quaternary glaciation.
