Ichnology concerns the study of interactions between organisms and both soft and hard substrates. Actualistic observation of a modern day river channel molluscan assemblage including unionid and sphaeriid bivalves and gastropods within the Saint John River, Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada...
Digitizing newspapers has a decades-long history, particularly within the library settings that cater to needs of researchers and scholars. However, as scanned images, navigating such archives to locate news articles of interest, mobilize items by topic, authorship or correspondences is often...
The study of methanogenesis in wastewater biofilms and various aggregated methanogenic environmental samples with high spatial resolution can be achieved by using microbiosensor techniques. In this study, the fabrication of a microbiosensor for methane detection was studied. This microbiosensor...
The "mulata affect" may be understood as the repetitive process and movement of power and affect qualified in the mulata image over time. Through a lens of affect theory this study seeks to analyse how the mulata image in Cuba has historically been affected by, and likewise affected, cultural...
Productivity and carbon accumulation potential of transferred biofilms in reclaimed oil sands-affected wetlandsDownload
Biofilms are significant contributors to primary production, nutrient cycling, bio-stabilization and the food web of wetland ecosystems. Photoautotrophic biomass (PB) and primary production (PP) were determined for biofilms exposed to various treatments and materials in wetlands near Fort...
An agricultural land was adversely affected by salt released by the oil and gas industry. Remediation was needed to recover the land to agricultural productivity. Field-scale and laboratory-scale experiments were conducted to identify a practical and reliable remediation technique that could be...
Methane Production and Emission Mitigation in Oil Sands Tailings Concurrent with Hydrocarbon Degradation under Nitrogen Limited ConditionsDownload
Alberta’s oil sands generate large volumes of tailings from bitumen ore processing. These tailings ponds produce biogenic methane, which can be measured across 60-80% of the tailings surface. Based on current surface area data and emissions studies, tailings ponds could account for 8% of Canada’s...
Remediation of bitumen-contaminated sand grains: development of a protocol for washing performance evaluationDownload
In the development of a non-aqueous bitumen extraction process, a major obstacle is solvent loss due to hydrocarbon attachment to the reject sand grains. A proposed solution to this problem is to wash (i.e. remediate) the oil-contaminated sand grains with water and surfactants. This research is...
One of the central puzzles concerning the interaction of low Reynolds number (Re<<1) fluid transport with bacterial biomass is the formation of filamentous structures called bacterial streamer. Bacterial streamers can be tethered at one or both ends to solid surfaces, while the rest of the...
Determination of biokinetic parameters of wastewater biofilms from oxygen concentration profilesDownload
The process of scale-up and rational optimization of biofilm processes for effective wastewater treatment and reuse require better understanding of the biokinetic behavior of microorganisms in the biofilms. At present, no fast and accurate methods exist for determining kinetic parameters for...
