Seeing the forest for the soil: topographic controls on soil carbon dynamics in the boreal mixedwood forestDownload
Boreal forest soils store an estimated 272 Pg of carbon. Due to a high degree of spatial heterogeneity, there is a wide range in carbon stores in this ecosystem. Changes in topography and forest structure are important to carbon distribution, influencing the soil microclimate and the chemical...
Geodia barretti - Energy budget data sheet for Limnology and Oceanography
Geodia barretti is a massive nearly spherical sponge that forms dense assemblages on the continental shelf of the North Altantic and the Norwegian Sea. We studied the metabolism of individual sponges collected using a remotely operated vehicle and maintained in large tanks with high volumes of...
Understanding factors affecting elemental carbon stocks on Alberta’s grasslands is of special importance with recent policy shifts focusing on climate change and carbon (C) emissions. A large part of Alberta is native prairie utilized by the beef industry. This study examined soil and vegetation...
Dissolved Organic Carbon Mobilization and Degradation Patterns in Retrogressive Thaw Slumps of the Peel Plateau, Northwest Territories, CanadaDownload
Anthropogenic climate change has affected the Canadian Arctic cryosphere, accelerating the development of retrogressive thaw slumps (RTS) across the Peel Plateau, NWT, Canada. RTS result from the thawing of ice-rich permafrost and develop due to ablation of ground ice exposed in the slump...
Diagenetic Controls on Hydrothermal Fluid Flow in the Osiris, Isis, and Isis East Carlin-Type Gold Showings, Nadaleen Trend, YukonDownload
Following ATAC Resources Ltd.’s 2010 discovery of the gold prospects in the Nadaleen Trend (Central Yukon), company geologists and consultants determined that Precambrian carbonate rocks within the trend contain large endowments of gold located in the hinges of anticlines and fault zones. ...
This report describes the methods and samples utilized (to 2014) within the Canadian Centre for Isotopic Microanalysis (CCIM), University of Alberta, for routine analysis of δ13CVPDB, δ15NAIR, and N abundances of diamonds by secondary ion mass spectrometry (Cameca IMS 1280). Analyses by...
This thesis is focused on the Si-based anode materials for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) as well as biomass-derived carbons for LIBs and sodium-ion batteries (NIBs). In our first attempt we investigated the effect of the support growth substrate as well as of aluminum coating layers on the...
Development of High Efficiency and New Selectivity Liquid Chromatographic Phases for the Separation of Ionic and Hydrophilic AnalytesDownload
Separation of low molecular weight ions and hydrophilic analytes is achieved by high performance ion chromatography (IC) and hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC). The goal of this thesis was three-fold: to increase the efficiency of IC separations by employing small particles; to...
Boreal peatlands are widely considered as an important carbon sink. Peat moisture is important for controlling carbon sequestration and smouldering combustion. Retrieving surface moisture is of great interest for carbon budget modelling and fire management in peatlands. To monitor at a large...
