Subsurface Geophysical Characterization of the Crystalline Canadian Shield in Northeastern Alberta: Implications for Geothermal DevelopmentDownload
In northern Alberta, existing heat flow and geothermal gradient studies suggest that using geothermal heat in oil sands processing would require deep drilling of the crystalline Canadian Shield. Using a 2.36 km deep borehole located near Fort McMurray, the goal of this study is to investigate the...
Possible thunderstorm modifications caused by the Athabasca oil sands development and the Canadian ShieldDownload
Thunderstorms are common in boreal forest regions and can cause dangerous hazards such as lightning, forest fires, hail, wind, and flooding. Significant research has been conducted to help predict thunderstorms to mitigate or avoid the hazards and damage. The development of thunderstorms...
N2 in deep subsurface fracture fluids of the Canadian Shield: Source and possible recycling processesDownload
In addition to high concentrations of CH4 and H2, abundant dissolved N2 is found in subsurface fracture fluids in Precambrian cratons around the world. These fracture fluids have hydrogeological isolation times on order of thousands to millions and even billions of years. Assessing the sources...
