A 15,800-year record of atmospheric lead deposition on the Devon Island Ice Cap, Nunavut, Canada: Natural and anthropogenic enrichments, isotopic composition, and predominant sourcesDownload
Abstract: Using appropriate clean methods for handling and preparation, 57 ice samples from the Devon Island Ice Cap, representing the period 134 to 15,800 years before present (BP), were analyzed for Pb, Sc, and Pb isotopes (Pb-206, Pb-207, Pb-208) using ICP-SMS. The greatest Pb concentrations...
Alberta Environment is in the process of reviewing the scientific and technical basis for refinement of a regulatory approach to the environmental impact of present and future industrial development in the Athabasca oil sands region. The review has encompassed the results of 10 years (1975 to...
An environmental study of the Athabasca tar sands: Report and recommendations to Alberta Department of the EnvironmentDownload
The following was the general concept of the work for which the Study was commissioned: • Identify the various methods that could be used for oil extraction and their comparative merits with respect to minimum adverse effects on the environment. • In considering the Clark method of tar sands...
This study reviews constraints that should be considered in connection with synthetic crude pipe line gathering systems and routes within the Athabasca tar sands area. Specifically the terms of reference of this study were defined as: a) Study and identify all the important constraints in...
Evaluation, analysis, and assessment of snowpack and precipitation data from a monitoring network in the AOSERP study areaDownload
The data and network operating procedures from the precipitation and snow sampling networks in the AOSERP area of Alberta were reviewed and assessed. The data was first reformatted into NAQUADAT format and then quality assured by several screening procedures including outlier tests, simultaneous...
Interim report on the acidification of Lake 223, experimental lakes area: Background data, the first year of acidification (1976), and pilot experimentsDownload
At the outset of AOSERP there was considerable concern that significant quantities of acid precipitation and heavy metals emanating from oil sands plants might adversely affect lakes near the oil sands area. Thus, the Aquatic Fauna Technical Research Committee initiated this project with the...
