This is one of a series of reports that presents the findings of the Plains Hydrology and Reclamation Project (PHRP), an interdisciplinary study that focuses primarily on hydrologic aspects of reclamation of surface coal mines in the plains of Alberta. This research has been conducted by the...
A preliminary study of chemical and microbial characteristics of the Athabasca River in the Athabasca oil sands area of northeastern AlbertaDownload
A literature review and evaluation of methods used to determine rates of bacterial uptake (heterotrophic assimilation) of organic substrates in fresh water systems was undertaken. The uptake of a \"universal\" substrate - radiolabelled glutamic acid - was determined in order to assess the effects...
A review of aquatic biomonitoring with particular reference to its possible use in the AOSERP study areaDownload
The general principles, approaches, and methods of aquatic biomonitoring are outlined from a review of the literature, with emphasis on those aspects directly applicable to the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program (AOSERP) study area. It is argued that an aquatic biomonitoring program...
This report is not intended to be a definitive review of published literature concerning environmental changes which might occur in northern ecosystems as a result of massive industrial development. Rather, it is intended to summarize a large number of surveys and some research of a distinctly...
A review of the available literature was conducted on obligatory insectivorous animals expected or known to occur in the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program study area. Several biologists involved in studies of the area were contacted. Distribution, abundance in the AOSERP study...
Approaches to the design of a biomonitoring program using arthropods as bioindicators for the AOSERP study areaDownload
Present oil sand extracting plants are licensed to emit up to 635 t of S02 per day, along with large quantities of other gasses and fly ash. Additional oil sand extraction plants are in the planning stages. The cumulative effect of additional plants will tax the ability of the local environment...
The Alberta Forest Service has questioned the use of Caragana arborescens Lam. (common names: caragana, Siberian peatree and Siberian peashrub; the common name caragana will be used throughout this report) as a high-portion species for afforestation of reclaimed areas associated with oil sands...
Catalogue of Technologies for Reducing the Environmental Impact of Fine Tailings from Oil Sands ProcessingDownload
A catalogue containing 22 technologies for reducing the environmental impact of fine tailings derived from oil sand processing has been assembled. The simple format which was developed as part of this study consisted of a spreadsheet outline of the technologies and a process summary for each...
Air pollution and its effects on various ecosystems has been a subject of increasing controversy. The European forest damage situation has heightened the public's awareness of the problem. Historically, the observed pollution damage was believed to be due mainly to sulphur dioxide pollution. ...
This literate review evaluates the information available on the effects of overstripping topsoil during pipeline construction on native rangelands in southeastern Alberta. The effects on soil quality and handling of Chernozemic and Solonetzic soils are presented in detail as these are the...
