Syncrude Canada Ltd., which has operated an oil sands extraction plant at Mildred Lake since 1978, has undertaken various environmental studies associated with the development since 1971. The purpose of the 1984 investigation, which involved a multi-disciplinary study team, was to characterize...
A synopsis of the physical and biological limnology and fishery programs within the Alberta oil sands areaDownload
“A Synopsis of the Physical and Biological Limnology and Fishery Programs within the Alberta Oil Sands Area\" forms a background reference document on the limnology of the AOSER Program study area in northeastern Alberta. Within the report, the following items are discussed and summarized: data...
Extraction of bitumen from the Alberta Oil Sands by surface mining will have a major impact on the hydrology of the areas immediately adjacent to each mine, and an impact on any drainage system receiving discharge from the mining or processing areas. Conversely, the hydrology will have a major...
The Mackenzie Delta is the second largest northern delta in the world. The water from the Delta entering the Beaufort Sea has a significant impact on its dynamics. Areas in the Delta were surveyed using LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging). The goals of this study were to characterize the...
Application of SWAT-MODFLOW Software to Evaluate Groundwater-Surface Water Interaction in West-Central AlbertaDownload
Responsible watershed management is emerging as a key issue as humanity continues to place increasing demands on water resources. To meet future demands, it has become imperative that water resources be managed as a holistic system rather than solely focusing on individual aspects....
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...
This report identifies historical, annual and open water, low flow sequences for 13 stations in the Athabasca River Basin. Frequency curves are developed which provide an estimate of droughts of a specified exceedance probability. Drought events recorded on the Athabasca River below McMurray...
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...
Changes in Arctic sea ice and hydrology of pan-Arctic river basins under the impact of climate changeDownload
Under the impact of global warming, the hydro-climatology over the Arctic has changed significantly. Warming over the Arctic region is twice the global mean warming rate since the 1980s, known as Arctic Amplification, which occurs because warming induces melting of sea ice, leading to feedbacks...
The pan-Arctic domain is undergoing some of Earth's most rapid and significant changes resulting from anthropogenic and climate-induced alteration of freshwater distribution. Changes in terrestrial freshwater discharge entering the Arctic Basin from pan-Arctic watersheds significantly impact...
