As one of its last projects, the Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN) conducted this survey of oil sands environmental management research and information needs. The survey was conducted in October and early November 2014 for OSRIN by the University of Alberta’s Population Research...
A random sample of 1,032 Albertans, aligned with the Statistics Canada 2006 demographic profile of the Province of Alberta, completed an on-line survey with two elements: a conjoint best-worse survey, and a set of attitudinal questions. The goal of the CSI-OSRIN Oil Sands Survey (the survey) was...
The objective of the waterfowl segment of the AOSERP/Avifauna program consisted of determining waterfowl species abundance and diversity and habitat associations. During waterfowl aerial surveys the length of wetland edge surveyed in 1976 ranged from 373 to 453 km on 65± wetlands. ...
A soil survey of a portion of Syncrude No. 17 Lease Area, encompassing an area of about 93 square kilometres, was conducted during the period between June 20 and July 8, 1977. The soils were inspected and described at 413 sites and representative soils were sampled for physical and chemical...
