Seasonal and areal variations in significant water quality parameters in the Muskeg River basin of northeastern Alberta are described. Specific conductances and the concentrations of major ions (Ca+2, Mg+2, HCO3 -, and, to some extent, Na+ and Cl-) generally exhibited relatively stable seasonal...
Landscape variables influencing nutrients and phytoplankton communities in boreal plain lakes of northern Alberta: a comparison of wetland- and upland-dominated catchmentsDownload
Working Paper 2000-8
Surface mining for bitumen extraction results in production of tailings that are deposited into large ponds. Tailings in the ponds support diverse microbial communities capable of metabolizing organic compounds and producing biogenic gases (methane, CH4 and carbon dioxide, CO2). Because of low...
Nutrient and carbon export from a tidewater glacier to the coastal ocean in the Canadian Arctic ArchipelagoDownload
As glaciers melt, a range of on-, in-, and under-glacier processes modify and export freshwater and sediments to the ocean. This glacial runoff may influence biological productivity in coastal ecosystems by supplying essential nutrients and labile carbon. Previous studies of glacial meltwater...
Nutrient distribution in sandy soils along a forest productivity gradient in the Athabasca Oil Sands Region, Alberta, CanadaDownload
Brunisolic soils developed on coarse textured (sandy loam to sand) deposits comprise a significant portion of the land currently being disturbed by surface mining in the Athabasca Oil Sands Region of Alberta, Canada. The goals of this study were to determine (i) how the physical properties of...
Planktonic and Epipelic Algal Communities and their Relationship to Physical and Chemical Variables in Alpine Ponds in Banff National Park, CanadaDownload
We surveyed 14 ponds in 1999 and 28 ponds in 2000 to better understand the basic limnology of alpine ponds and to predict how the planktonic and epipelic (sediment-living) algal communities may respond to nutrient deposition and climate change. Based on nitrogen to phosphorus ratios, nitrogen...
The objective of this report is to summarize water quality constituents in the AOSERP study area and to examine relationships between these constituents and changes in land formation, hydrology, and development. Summaries of routine parameters, nutrients, and metals are presented for sampling...
