Effects of Alternative Forest Harvesting Strategies on Snowpack Dynamics and Seasonal Soil Moisture Storage in Alberta's Mountain HeadwatersDownload
Snowpack accumulation and melt dynamics, and soil moisture storage (SMS) play a critical role in regulating stressed regional water supplies in the southern Alberta Rockies. However, these processes are sensitive to impacts from forest cover losses by timber harvesting and associated land...
This presentation speaks to the curation of “Dispatch from the Frontlines: Water Protection and Indigenous Resistance and Resurgence Along the Athabasca River,” a display created for LIS 598: Indigenous Contexts for Library and Information Studies in Canada. The questions that guide the display,...
Understanding peoples' preferences for resources that are not bought or sold in a market is a challenging and yet often inescapable undertaking for informing decisions regarding many environmental problems. This thesis presents three studies on how people make decisions involving environmental...
Anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions are driving climate change. The largest sources of emitted carbon dioxide are coal and fossil fuel power plants. One proposed solution to mitigate emissions is to capture carbon dioxide from fossil fuel power plants and store it underground. This is the...
The basic human right to have safe and clean drinking water cannot be neglected with the ever-rising worldwide need for drinking water that meets global standards. Local monitoring of water sources is even more vital in areas where access to pure drinking water is limited and its processing...
March 11, 2011, 14:46 Japan Standard Time. This was the moment that marked the beginning of what is now known as the “2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami,” a catastrophe that brought about devastation throughout many regions in Japan, most notably in the north eastern region of the main island of...
Tradeoffs Between Environmental Quality and Economic Returns from Agriculture: A Case Study of the Lower Little Bow Watershed, AlbertaDownload
The aim of this study is to evaluate both the costs and benefits of implementing changes to agricultural practices, with the goal of identifying cost effective means of achieving environmental targets and providing supplementary information to policymakers. A suite of agricultural land use...
Mechanisms of Aggregation and Separation of Water and Solids from Bitumen Froth using Cluster Size DistributionDownload
The large-scale corrosion and equipment damage caused by water and solids respectively in bitumen froth necessitate their removal using various methods. This study is aimed at understanding how water and solids aggregate (water-water, water-solid and solid-solid) in bitumen froth and what the...
This letter describes a new method for fabricating supramolecular microgels from supramonomers. To this end, we designed and assembled supramonomers with one acrylate moiety on each end on the basis of noncovalent host–guest interactions, which could be utilized as a cross-linker. Then...
