This study is part of a three year project aimed to assess the effects of industrial water withdrawals on the ice regime of the Athabasca River. A 2-D numerical model was used to provide quantitative data for this effort. Freeze-up monitoring was carried out over two years along 80-km of the...
The problem of low dissolved oxygen (DO) level has been found to be widespread in ice-covered or polluted rivers. This thesis is targeted at providing some fundamental studies on the remediation measure of injecting air/oxygen via existing effluent diffusers to increase river’s DO level, with two...
