With climate change rapidly affecting northern forests and wetlands, mercury reserves once protected in cold, wet soils are being exposed to burning, likely triggering large releases of mercury to the atmosphere. We quantify organic soil mercury stocks and burn areas across western, boreal Canada...

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...
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...
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...
Carbon isotope analyses of gases extracted from drilling muds while drilling in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) can be used to create carbon isotopic depth profiles. These profiles provide essentially continuous data through the stratigraphic section, offering a unique opportunity to...
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...
A Large Fire Database (LFDB), which includes information on fire location, start date, final size, cause, and suppression action, has been developed for all fires larger than 200 ha in area for Canada for the 1959-1997 period. The LFDB represents only 3.1% of the total number of Canadian fires...
