Event description
Lecture: Shifting Perspective – How climate driven permafrost degradation will impact infrastructure in Canada’s North

About this event

Abstract: As permafrost in the Canadian Arctic undergoes climate driven degradation and changes, the stress and impact it will have on current and linear infrastructure networks will be significant. Now more than ever it is critical to work towards an understanding of not only ‘why’ but also ‘how’. How will we learn from today to plan and design adaptation and mitigation techniques for resilient infrastructure in the future? How can we develop models that will allow us to ‘dig deeper’ in our understanding? In her current research in this field, Dr. Beddoe is exploring questions like these, including: How can numerical modelling techniques allow us to predict future infrastructure risk? What adaptation techniques will limit the impact of permafrost degradation for infrastructure networks? How do these techniques change if the network is a railway? An ice road? A highway? In this presentation, Dr. Beddoe will present her and her team’s most recent research results aimed at answering these, and other related arctic geotechnical engineering questions.

Biography of the Speaker: Ryley Beddoe is an Associate Professor at the Royal Military College, with a research program focused on understanding the overarching impact on geotechnical design driven by climate change in Canada’s Arctic. Current and recent research include geohazard impacts on infrastructure in the Arctic and along the Hudson Bay Railway, ice road investigations along the Tibbitt to Contwoyto Joint Venture road in the Northwest Territories, ice road reinforcement studies, and climate drive embankment stabilization techniques. Her research uses both physical modelling techniques as well as numerical model simulations to investigate the influence of climate on these research questions. Ryley is a co-investigator with PermafrostNET, a Research director in the GeoEngineering Centre at Queen’s-RMC, and is an active member in national and international permafrost and geoengineering societies. Her research is supported by Transport Canada, NSERC, Government of Northwest Territories, Associate Engineering/NOR-EX Ice Engineering, National Research Council, and the Department of National Defence.

Event Program:

Organizer Canadian Geotechnical Society - Southern Ontario Section

Organizer of 2021 CGS-SOS Christmas Dinner & Lecture


About Us


The Canadian Geotechnical Society Southern Ontario Section (CGS-SOS) represents the national organization at the local level centered at the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and covering some cities in Southern Ontario. The CGS-SOS was established in the early 1970s and forms the largest region of the Society. Its purpose is to provide opportunities for continuing education (through lectures and seminars), and for constructive dialogue and sharing of experiences. This is accomplished through organizing events on about a monthly basis.


The Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS) is an independent, federally incorporated, non-profit learned society which exists to serve and promote the geotechnical and geo-science community in Canada. It encompasses a wide spectrum of scientific and engineering disciplines within the geotechnical field. Membership is open to individuals from all sectors including private consulting, universities, industry, contracting and public services.
