Exploring how soil fungi can be used to restore native trees on reclaimed substrates containing petroleum hydrocarbonsDownload
As part of reclaiming landscapes mined for bitumen, ecosystems must be revegetated to restore self-sustaining ecosystems in the boreal forest of western Canada. Current reclamation practices can involve the construction of large landforms, sometimes from overburden containing up to 8%...
Coal is mined for energy generation around the world, resulting in extensive disturbances to soil health and vegetation, and producing large amounts of waste. Heavy metals enter the environment through coal industry activities before being transmitted to the food chain. Reclaiming post mining...
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...
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...
Biodegradation of Hydrocarbons in Bitumen: Exploring Plant-Assisted and Microbial Stimulation TechniquesDownload
While bitumen is one of the oldest construction materials in the world and currently provides an important fuel needed to sustain our modern lifestyle, the disturbances caused by extracting and refining this material are considerable, with 895 km2 of land being disturbed in Alberta as of 2018...
Long Term Dynamics And Potential Remediation Of Fine Textured Soils And Ground Water Contaminated With Chlorinated Organic Compounds And SaltsDownload
Contamination of land, water, and air is a widespread concern often associated with anthropogenic activities. Remediation of contaminated sites is necessary to minimize negative impacts on human health and the environment and allow for safe, productive use of land. Although contaminated sites...
Acting as a co-factor for hundreds of enzymes, zinc (Zn) is an essential trace metal required for organismal success across all phyla. When aquatic organisms such as fish are Zn deficient, growth, metabolism, and health are all negatively impacted. However, Zn in excess may also impair overall...
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...
Arsenic is a proven human carcinogen and associated with a myriad of other adverse health effects. This metalloid is methylated in human liver to monomethylarsonic acid (MMAV), monomethylarsonous acid (MMAIII), dimethylarsinic acid (DMAV), and dimethylarsinous acid (DMAIII) and eliminated...
Synthetic polymers are still widely used in today’s life despite all environmental issues attributed to them. Replacing synthetic polymers with natural biodegradable polymers has been considered as a way of reducing these environmental impacts partially, if not completely. Hydroxyporpyl xylan...
