This report presents details on the analysis of historical natural flows in the Athabasca River basin. Monthly flows are provided for the period 1912 to 1980 at 21 locations on the Athabasca River and its major tributaries. The flow data sets are suitable for water management planning on the...
The Athabasca River Basin contains valuable resources including timber, coal, petroleum and natural gas, and oil sands. A variety of intensive development activities are taking place and the use of water in these activities is important. In order to provide the Athabasca River Basin Planner...
Characterization of magnetic nanoparticles as contrast agents and their application for quantitative magnetic susceptibility monitoring of the waterflooding of heavy oil in real timeDownload
Waterflooding is one enhanced oil recovery process used in heavy oil reservoirs such as at Cold Lake in North-Eastern Alberta. However, little has been published in terms of imaging heavy oil waterfloods, mainly due to the similar densities of water and heavy oil, which makes it difficult to...
Flow is a psychological state that provides a person with enjoyment when their skills and the challenges of their activity match. Thus flow encourages people to persist at and return to just manageable challenges; thereby fostering the growth of skills over time. It seems natural to assume that...
A challenge in petroleum geostatistics is the application of modeling algorithms such as Gaussian simulation to unstructured grids that are being used for flow simulation. Geostatistical modeling is typically applied on a fine scale regular grid and then upscaled to the unstructured grid. This...
This mixed format (research and discussion) article addresses the relationship between occupation and health. The conceptual discussion is deepened by including findings from a phenomenological study of the lived experience of professional musicians with playing-related injuries. Participants...
Mannell (1996) describes psychologically deep experiences (PDEs) “as special, out-of-the-ordinary, or meaningful” experiences that typically involve altered perceptions of time, self, and surroundings (p. 405). This dissertation focuses on four PDEs— Turner’s (1969) Communitas, Kaplan and...
Role of adventitious roots in water relations of tamarack (Larix laricina) seedlings exposed to floodingDownload
Background: Flooding reduces supply of oxygen to the roots affecting plant water uptake. Some flooding-tolerant tree species including tamarack (Larix laricina (Du Roi) K. Koch) produce adventitious roots in response to flooding. These roots were reported to have higher hydraulic conductivity...
Simulations of fully coupled lake‐groundwater exchange in a subhumid climate with an integrated hydrologic modelDownload
 A fully coupled, integrated surface water/groundwater model was used to study hydrologic controls on lake-groundwater interaction in the subhumid, Boreal Plains of northern Alberta, Canada. Findings from a previous water budget study indicate that lakes on the outwash landscape capture...
