A stratified random sampling procedure involving a helicopter census of square-mile (2.6 km2) quadrats in a 648 mi2 (1,678 km2) pilot area in the AOSERP study area was continued in February 1977. The census produced a weighted mean estimate of 0.49 moose/mi2 (0.19/km2), or a study area estimate...
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...
The results of a baseline air quality and meteorological data collection program at a site in the Athabasca oil sands region, 65 km north of Fort McMurray, Alberta are presented. Sulphur dioxide, ozone, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide and meteorological parameters were monitored from May 1983...
Some chemical and physical properties of soil materials associated with the reclamation of mined tar sands areasDownload
This document consists of two tables providing chemical and physical properties of soil, peat, overburden, spent sand and lean tar sand from Syncrude and Suncor.
Within the next decade we are likely to see some significant tests of the current oil sands regulatory and policy framework, including: • Industry-driven: such as an application for reclamation certificate or an application for release of process-affected water or a request to approve the...
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...
Next-Generation Sequencing of Protists as a Measure of Natural Soil Microbial Eukaryotic Community in the Oil Sands RegionDownload
Soil plays a central role in the functioning of all terrestrial ecosystems. Among the many ecosystem services to which soil contributes are: purification and storage of water, sequestration of organic matter, nutrient cycling for plant growth, and conservation of healthy faunal and microbial...
Twenty journalists who regularly produce articles, televised reports and videos about the Alberta oil sands and issues pertaining to the oil sands participated in this study. Although most of the stories about the Alberta oil sands that appear in the news media have a business or economic focus,...
Extraction of bitumen from the Alberta Oil Sands by surface mining will have a major impact on the hydrology of the areas immediately adjacent to each mine, and an impact on any drainage system receiving discharge from the mining or processing areas. Conversely, the hydrology will have a major...
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...
