Lynden Penner began his consulting career with JDMA in 1986 and has been President of J.D. Mollard and Associates (2010) Limited since 2010. He holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees in geological engineering from the University of Saskatchewan, has published over two dozen technical papers, and has presented numerous workshops and seminars on airphoto and satellite image interpretation for terrain analysis, engineering and environmental applications. Lynden is also a sessional lecturer with the Faculty of Engineering at The University of Regina, where he and other JDMA staff teach airphoto interpretation for terrain and site analysis. He is a past president of the Regina Geotechnical Group and is currently a Board member for the Canadian Foundation of Geotechnique.
Lynden has extensive experience managing and contributing to multidisciplinary study teams for engineering and geoscience consulting assignments and research. His studies cover a broad range of terrain analysis applications including shoreline erosion around prairie and northern lakes and reservoirs, construction materials location and assessment, route selection studies for highway, road, pipeline and power transmission lines across western and northern Canada, geohazard mapping and assessment, hydrogeology, geotechnical site assessment for industrial facilities and linear infrastructure, lineament mapping and related stress analysis for oil and gas, mining and nuclear waste disposal applications, soil gas detection and data analysis, terrain analysis for prediction of stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in natural gas pipelines, remote sensing for oil, natural gas and mineral industries, environmental screening, public consultation, and preparation of submissions to federal and provincial regulatory agencies.
Other specialized studies include limnological coring for environmental assessment work in hydroelectric reservoirs, peatland mapping and peat coring for road routing and construction in northern peatland environments, geological and hydrogeological mapping and assessment work in environmentally sensitive areas such as the Great Sand Hills of southwestern Saskatchewan, and development of a GIS-based shoreline erosion model and related field studies.
Lynden is proud to lead a diverse and highly qualified team of engineers, geoscientists, earth scientists, geographers and GIS specialists at JDMA, and would be pleased to answers any questions you may have regarding application of terrain analysis techniques and expertise to address your specific needs.
