Design techniques are presented for a very high frequency telemetry system capable of transmitting short radio frequency pulse signals from the body of a fish to an aircraft flying over a river. The system design has considered the water chemistry and river turbulence of the Athabasca River in...
This study was initiated in early 1976 during the early stages of the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program. The goal of the project was the establishment of criteria safeguarding fish from toxic effects of mixtures of vanadium, nickel, and phenol to fish. All three constituents are...
Watersheds in the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program study area: Drainage basin delineations, watershed areas, and stream profilesDownload
This report contains watershed boundary delineations and associated drainage areas, and channel profiles on watersheds in the AOSERP study area. Included are watersheds larger than 50 km2 (20 mi2) tributary to the Athabasca River, and tributary sub-basins which contain standard hydrometric...
Analyses are given for up to 12 metals and 4 pesticides with PCBs, of aquatic environment from 15 study sites along or near the Athabasca River from Fort McMurray north to the confluence of the Peace and Slave Rivers. There were 560 fish (8 species), 15 water, 14 sediment and a few phyto-plankton...
A synopsis of the physical and biological limnology and fishery programs within the Alberta oil sands areaDownload
“A Synopsis of the Physical and Biological Limnology and Fishery Programs within the Alberta Oil Sands Area\" forms a background reference document on the limnology of the AOSER Program study area in northeastern Alberta. Within the report, the following items are discussed and summarized: data...
Physical description of selected tributary mouths and sheltered backwaters of the Athabasca and Clearwater riversDownload
A survey of the physical characteristics of the aquatic habitats at 25 locations on the Athabasca and Clearwater rivers was conducted during August 1978. The parameters determined at each site were current velocity and direction, depth, Secchi disc visibility, substrate composition, and...
A longitudinal physico-chemical and algal survey of five rivers flowing through the AOSERP study areaDownload
Studies concentrating upon the epilithon were conducted in five tributary rivers flowing into the Athabasca River: the Muskeg, Steepbank, Hangingstone, MacKay, and Ells rivers. The species composition of the epilithic algae was determined during June to November 1978. Diatoms and blue-green...
The Pesticide Chemicals Branch of Alberta Environment conducted a monitoring program in 1979 related to two methoxychlor treatments of the Athabasca River for black fly (Simulium arcticum) control. Three populations of black fly larvae were observed in 1979 and the first two populations were...
As a result of industrial development in the Athabasca oil sands area of northeastern Alberta, concerns have been raised regarding potential impacts on surface water quality in the area. It is of particular concern that the cumulative effects of increasing development of the oil sands may create...
Investigations of the spring spawning fish populations in the Athabasca and Clearwater Rivers upstream from Fort McMurray: Volume 1Download
Fisheries investigations were undertaken in the spring of 1978 (28 April to 25 June) in the Athabasca and Clearwater rivers upstream of Fort McMurray. The major objectives of the studies were to determine what spring spawners utilized these sections of the Athabasca and Clearwater rivers; to...
