The rapid expansion of oil sands activities and massive energy requirements to extract and upgrade the bitumen have led to a need for more comprehensive understanding of their potential environmental impacts, particularly on air quality. There are many oil sands developments and natural sources...
Sheet and film forming processes refer to a set of processes that have a 2-dimensional sheet or film as their output. They are typically characterized by a scanning sensor which moves between the edges of the sheet in a periodic manner. This work is concerned with control and monitoring of such...
Biological engineering is a domain of study that involves applying known engineering principles to biological systems. Qualitative studies in the field of biology have undergone tremendous advancements in the last two decades but quantitation is still in its early stages due to various...
Monitoring Procedures for Wellsite, In-Situ Oil Sands and Coal Mine Reclamation in Alberta (MOPRA) – December 2014 UpdateDownload
The scope of the Monitoring Procedure for Reclamation in Alberta (MOPRA) project is to develop a geomatics-based monitoring system to support the Government of Alberta’s efforts for monitoring reclamation success. This software will support the decision making process to screen almost all oil...
A 4D filtering and calibration technique for small-scale point cloud change detection with a terrestrial laser scannerDownload
This study presents a point cloud de-noising and calibration approach that takes advantage of point redundancy in both space and time (4D). The purpose is to detect displacements using terrestrial laser scanner data at the sub-mm scale or smaller, similar to radar systems, for the study of very...
Chemical and biological monitoring of the muskeg drainage at the Alsands project site. Program evaluation and suggestions for continued monitoringDownload
Volume I of this report reviewed the available data on the aquatic resources of the Muskeg River drainage as a background to further studies on the river system. Volume II presented the results of monitoring and fish studies conducted in 1980. The present volume evaluates the 1980 monitoring...
The purpose of this study was to examine the application of remote sensing to environmental monitoring of the Athabasca Oil Sands region and to demonstrate the way in which field-acquired and remotely-sensed data could be integrated. Vegetation field data were acquired and sample plots were...
As one of its last projects, the Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN) conducted this survey of oil sands environmental management research and information needs. The survey was conducted in October and early November 2014 for OSRIN by the University of Alberta’s Population Research...
This review presents a summary of tracers use in environmental applications and the potential for tracer use in the Athabasca oil sands. An extensive literature search was conducted accessing articles in refereed journals, theses and unpublished studies conducted by AITF.
