On-Line Solid Phase Extraction – HPLC – Orbitrap Mass Spectrometry for Screening and Quantifying Targeted and Non-Targeted Analytes in Oil Sands Process-Affected Water and Natural Waters in the Athabasca Oil Sands RegionDownload
In response to mounting evidence of local environmental contamination around the Alberta oil sands industry, the Alberta Environmental Monitoring Panel announced a new world class environmental monitoring program for the Alberta oil sands region in early 2011, and a new monitoring system is now...
This review presents a summary of tracers use in environmental applications and the potential for tracer use in the Athabasca oil sands. An extensive literature search was conducted accessing articles in refereed journals, theses and unpublished studies conducted by AITF.
Alberta Innovates – Technology Futures (AITF) conducted a review of microbial Community Level Physiological Profiling (CLPP) as a means of monitoring aquatic ecosystem health for the Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN). Relevant research was compiled from journal articles, the...
The impact of mixing on diluted bitumen de-watering is studied in two stages using a fractional factorial design of experiments. The first stage evaluates the relative effects of bulk demulsifier dosage, local maximum energy dissipation, and mixing time. The second stage of experiments evaluates...
The Oil Sands Leadership Initiative (OSLI) is a collaboration of five progressive oil sands operators (ConocoPhillips Canada, Nexen Inc., Statoil Canada, Suncor Energy Inc. and Total E&P Canada), with the Government of Alberta participating as an observer, working to advance the development of...
A review of aquatic biomonitoring with particular reference to its possible use in the AOSERP study areaDownload
The general principles, approaches, and methods of aquatic biomonitoring are outlined from a review of the literature, with emphasis on those aspects directly applicable to the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program (AOSERP) study area. It is argued that an aquatic biomonitoring program...
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...
The present report is an update of the previous report, \"Interim Compilation of Stream Gauging Data, 1978\" (Project HY 1.1), and contains all available hydrometric data for the study area for the 1979 calendar year. Presented are daily discharges for streamflow stations with corresponding...
The colonization of limestone bricks and bitumen coated limestone bricks by benthic river organisms was followed over time. After nine weeks of colonization, no massive increase in the numbers of bacteria on the bitumen was noted, suggesting that degradation was not proceeding rapidly. However,...
Seasonal and areal variations in significant water quality parameters in the Muskeg River basin of northeastern Alberta are described. Specific conductances and the concentrations of major ions (Ca+2, Mg+2, HCO3 -, and, to some extent, Na+ and Cl-) generally exhibited relatively stable seasonal...
