Land use and land use change strongly influence the carbon (C) dynamics within ecosystems. This study quantified four aspects of land use and land use change effects: 1) ecosystem C stocks and distribution; 2) soil respiration; 3) soil C mineralization; and 4) net ecosystem productivity. Land use...
Conductive Atomic Force Microscopy Study of Electron Transport Through Diazonium Derived Films and Mixed – Mode Bonded Layers on Gold and Carbon SurfacesDownload
For Molecular Electronics to become a viable replacement or complitment to current elec- tronic devices a fundamental understanding of device operation and functionality is needed. This work explores electron transport through diazonium derived molecular junctions via conductive atomic force...
Development of High Efficiency and New Selectivity Liquid Chromatographic Phases for the Separation of Ionic and Hydrophilic AnalytesDownload
Separation of low molecular weight ions and hydrophilic analytes is achieved by high performance ion chromatography (IC) and hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC). The goal of this thesis was three-fold: to increase the efficiency of IC separations by employing small particles; to...
Diagenetic Controls on Hydrothermal Fluid Flow in the Osiris, Isis, and Isis East Carlin-Type Gold Showings, Nadaleen Trend, YukonDownload
Following ATAC Resources Ltd.’s 2010 discovery of the gold prospects in the Nadaleen Trend (Central Yukon), company geologists and consultants determined that Precambrian carbonate rocks within the trend contain large endowments of gold located in the hinges of anticlines and fault zones. ...
Dissolved Organic Carbon Mobilization and Degradation Patterns in Retrogressive Thaw Slumps of the Peel Plateau, Northwest Territories, CanadaDownload
Anthropogenic climate change has affected the Canadian Arctic cryosphere, accelerating the development of retrogressive thaw slumps (RTS) across the Peel Plateau, NWT, Canada. RTS result from the thawing of ice-rich permafrost and develop due to ablation of ground ice exposed in the slump...
Understanding factors affecting elemental carbon stocks on Alberta’s grasslands is of special importance with recent policy shifts focusing on climate change and carbon (C) emissions. A large part of Alberta is native prairie utilized by the beef industry. This study examined soil and vegetation...
Carbon isotope analyses of gases extracted from drilling muds while drilling in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) can be used to create carbon isotopic depth profiles. These profiles provide essentially continuous data through the stratigraphic section, offering a unique opportunity to...
Boreal peatlands are widely considered as an important carbon sink. Peat moisture is important for controlling carbon sequestration and smouldering combustion. Retrieving surface moisture is of great interest for carbon budget modelling and fire management in peatlands. To monitor at a large...
Seeing the forest for the soil: topographic controls on soil carbon dynamics in the boreal mixedwood forestDownload
Boreal forest soils store an estimated 272 Pg of carbon. Due to a high degree of spatial heterogeneity, there is a wide range in carbon stores in this ecosystem. Changes in topography and forest structure are important to carbon distribution, influencing the soil microclimate and the chemical...
