A hydrologic parameter that has become synonymous with water quality evaluations of rivers is the term “7Q10”. This term represents the annual minimum 7-day discharge at a particular location along a river, below which flows would be expected to occur in only 10% of the years. The complement to...
This report is a condensed version of two reports on the chemistry of a variety of oil sands substrates from Syncrude, Suncor, OSLO and SolvEx. The study was conducted by EnviroTest Laboratories for RRTAC, Syncrude, Suncor and OSLO. Page 2 of the report identifies the source of the various...
Standard Operating Procedures for Analysis of Naphthenic Acids from Oil Sands Process-Affected WaterDownload
Naphthenic acids (NAs) are considered the main source of chronic and acute toxicity in oil sands process-affected water (OSPW). The purpose of this investigation is to establish elements of a standard procedure to determine and minimize the amount of NA loss during storage, sample preparation...
The equations expressing the conservation of mass, vertical momentum and energy are solved analytically for the rise of buoyant plumes in calm atmospheric conditions. The separate and joint effects of entrainment and drag on plume behavior are discussed.
Species profile for Symphyotrichum puniceum var. puniceum: purple stem aster
The Pesticide Chemicals Branch of Alberta Environment conducted a monitoring program in 1981 related to two methoxychlor treatments of the Athabasca River for black fly (Diptera: Simulium arcticum) control. Three populations of black fly larvae were observed in 1981 and the first two populations...
Species profile for Vicia americana: peavine, wild pea, American vetch, wild vetch
A review of pertinent literature was conducted to examine the effect of various organic materials when used as amendments to disturbed soil. The review was designed to be a reference document for government and industry staff involved in soil conservation and management of disturbed land. A...

Aspects of the hydrologic and sediment regimes of the Muskeg River basin and the consequences of vegetation removalDownload
In a near-natural state the aptly named 1520 km2 Muskeg River basin in northeastern Alberta has an average annual water yield of 94 mm, (20 percent of the precipitation), and an average annual sediment yield of 3210 tonnes (2.20 t/km2) which is derived almost exclusively from channel and riparian...
