A Laboratory Study on the Effect of Helmet Fit on Biomechanical Measures of Head and Neck Injury in Simulated ImpactDownload
Conventional wisdom and the language in international helmet testing and certification standards suggest that appropriate helmet fit and retention during an impact are important factors in protecting the helmet wearer from impact-induced injury. This thesis aims to investigate impact-induced...
The <1,130 year old Whitecourt Meteorite Impact Crater, located several kilometres south of Whitecourt, Alberta (Canada), is a well-preserved bowl-shaped structure having a depth and diameter of ~6 m and 36 m. There are less than a dozen known terrestrial sites of similar size and age. Unlike...
This study addresses the need to provide comprehensive historical climate data and climate change projections at a scale suitable for, and readily accessible to, researchers and resource managers. This database for western North America (WNA) includes over 20 000 surfaces of monthly, seasonal,...
Effect of obesity on short- and long-term mortality postcoronary revascularization: a meta-analysis.Download
Objective: Overweight and obesity are often assumed to be risk factors for postprocedural mortality in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). However, recent studies have described an “obesity paradox”—a neutral or beneficial association between obesity and mortality postcoronary...
Abstract: Recreational activities in alpine areas have been increasing in recent decades, creating the need to improve our understanding of the impacts of these activities and how they are best managed. We explored impacts of recreational trail use on dry alpine meadows in the northern Canadian...
Natural disturbances and fish: Local and regional influences on winterkill of fathead minnows, Pimephales promelas, in boreal lakesDownload
We investigated the population dynamics of fathead minnow Pimephales promelas and the environmental factors of four small lakes in the boreal forest of Alberta, Canada, for 5 years to determine the influence of local and regional factors on the development of hypoxia and the occurrence of fish...
In the refining industry, the cost of a power system interruption is dominated by an associated loss of production. Power distribution within a refinery includes a set of production units within a highly inter-dependent process, where the outage of a single unit affects the production of...
In May of 1974, the Oil Sands Environment Study Group (O.S.E.S.G.) authorized a First Phase Regional Hydrogeological Study of the McMurray Oil Sands area in Alberta. The objects of the assigned study were to: • Determine the present availability of pertinent hydrogeological data. • Interpret this...
Separating the influence of projected changes in air temperature and wind on patterns of sea level change and ocean heat contentDownload
We present ocean model sensitivity experiments aimed at separating the influence of the projected changes in the “thermal” (near-surface air temperature) and “wind” (near-surface winds) forcing on the patterns of sea level and ocean heat content. In the North Atlantic, the distribution of sea...
