This report is a condensed version of two reports on the chemistry of a variety of oil sands substrates from Syncrude, Suncor, OSLO and SolvEx. The study was conducted by EnviroTest Laboratories for RRTAC, Syncrude, Suncor and OSLO. Page 2 of the report identifies the source of the various...
Standard Operating Procedures for Analysis of Naphthenic Acids from Oil Sands Process-Affected WaterDownload
Naphthenic acids (NAs) are considered the main source of chronic and acute toxicity in oil sands process-affected water (OSPW). The purpose of this investigation is to establish elements of a standard procedure to determine and minimize the amount of NA loss during storage, sample preparation...
The equations expressing the conservation of mass, vertical momentum and energy are solved analytically for the rise of buoyant plumes in calm atmospheric conditions. The separate and joint effects of entrainment and drag on plume behavior are discussed.
Boreal wetlands play an important role in global carbon balance. However, their ecosystem function is threatened by direct anthropogenic disturbance and climate change. Oil sands surface mining in the boreal regions of Western Canada denudes tracts of land of organic materials, leaves large areas...
A review of pertinent literature was conducted to examine the effect of various organic materials when used as amendments to disturbed soil. The review was designed to be a reference document for government and industry staff involved in soil conservation and management of disturbed land. A...
Aspects of the hydrologic and sediment regimes of the Muskeg River basin and the consequences of vegetation removalDownload
In a near-natural state the aptly named 1520 km2 Muskeg River basin in northeastern Alberta has an average annual water yield of 94 mm, (20 percent of the precipitation), and an average annual sediment yield of 3210 tonnes (2.20 t/km2) which is derived almost exclusively from channel and riparian...
This is the second interim report for the AOSERP Longitudinal Study of Human Adjustment in the Fort McMurray Area (HS 30.5). The overall objectives of this project are to identify and analyse various dimensions and aspects of the social and personal adjustment to current and past conditions of...
To provide an overview of the archaeological potential and the development activities in the oil sands area of Alberta, with a recommended organization and program to maximize the recovery of valuable information through efficient and practical research and effective regulation of...
Ecological bench-marking and biomonitoring for detection of airborne pollutant effects on vegetation and soilsDownload
Biomonitoring plots established in 1976 and 1977 were revisited in 1979 and quantified with respect to their vascular plant community of the lower stratum, lichen community of black spruce branches, and both soil and plant element contents. There was no measurable change in any of the above...
NAIT-CGCE, NAIT School of Sustainable Building and Environmental Management, and the NAIT JR Shaw School of Business, in collaboration with COSIA, AIEES, and the Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN), held a technology innovation workshop on March 19, 2013 at the NAIT campus to open...
