Review of Technologies for the Characterization and Monitoring of VOCs, Reduced Sulphur Compounds and CH4Download
The overall goal of this project is to better understand the advantages and limitations of air emission pollutant characterization and monitoring techniques from area sources. This will allow for the selection of current technologies that are most suitable for measuring fugitive emissions of air...
Establishing a World Class Public Information and Reporting System for Ecosystems in the Oil Sands Region – Report and AppendicesDownload
This is one of two reports - this one (TR-5) contains detailed appendices; the other one (TR-5A) contains only the report. This report presents a vision for a comprehensive and effective Public Information and Reporting System for Ecosystem Effects in the Oil Sands Region that is relevant,...
This report describes Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN) activities and accomplishments for the fiscal year (FY) April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014. Key accomplishments for OSRIN this past year include: • Management of 38 research projects, support of 3 conferences and a Student...
A number of factors led to the need for a workshop to discuss surface water – groundwater interactions in the oil sands. These included: • Current government policies and the development of new policies and frameworks • Continued uncertainty regarding the potential for interactions and the...
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...
Hydrotechnical research in the Alberta Oil Sands has been oriented toward establishment of baseline (i.e. pre-development) environmental conditions and identification of contaminant transport mechanisms. Monitoring networks for both groundwaters and surface waters are in place and both water...
Prior to 1975 information on surface water hydrology in the oil sands area was very limited. During 1975 and 1976 a number of hydrometric gauging stations were provided by AOSERP to bring the total number of stations in the area to 32. Measurements of standard water quality parameters began at...
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...
The following is a study plan report coupled with detailed cost estimates aimed at obtaining field data on scavenging of pollutants up to about 80 km from source. The program design is based on conclusions reached in \"Literature Review on Pollution Deposition Processes\" (LIROPP), as well as...
As the demand for oil and gas resources increases pipeline construction pushes further into the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions. Consequently, these buried pipelines suffer much harsh environmental and complex loading conditions. Moreover, to increase the transporting efficiency, larger size pipes...
