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...
Research was conducted into using supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) for removing hydrocarbons from drill cuttings slurries, which will be used in a pilot-scale continuous SFE system currently under development. A laboratory-scale batch SFE system employing supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2)...
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...

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...
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 An extensive literature search was conducted accessing articles in refereed journals, theses and unpublished studies conducted by AITF.
Sensitivity of the subpolar North Atlantic to Last Glacial Maximum surface forcing and sea ice distribution in an eddy-permitting regional ocean modelDownload
The impact of paleoatmospheric forcing and sea ice distribution on the circulation of the subpolar North Atlantic is examined in a regional eddy-permitting ocean model. We focus on water mass formation and the pathway of the North Atlantic Current. Paleofluxes are obtained from a coupled...
Response of the Mediterranean Sea thermohaline circulation to observed changes in the winter wind stress field in the period 1980-1993Download
This paper seeks to model changes in deep water production in the eastern Mediterranean induced by changes in winter wind stress. An analysis of individual monthly wind stress fields over the Mediterranean for 1980–1993 from the SOC flux data set shows that an intensification of the winter mean...
