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...
Data associated with Matveev et al: Sense Induced Flow - Active use of ambient flow by a deep-sea glass spongeDownload
How flow moves through porous structures like sponges is a fluid dynamic problem that has challenged physical and biological scientists. Sponges possess biological pump cells that are known to drive water flow, and yet their porous bodies have often been proposed to take advantage of ambient...
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...
The tempo and mode of early animal evolution remains one of the biggest conundrums in biology. Stratigraphy shows that there is a gap, not attributable to poor preservation, of at least ~100 Myr between the oldest animal fossils and the divergence times implied by molecular phylogenies. Sponges,...
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...
