A study of the wet deposition of atmospheric pollutants in northeastern Alberta was initiated by Alberta Environment and Atmospheric Environment Service in 1976. The objectives of this ongoing study are to determine changes in the input rate of atmospheric trace substances into sensitive...
Biogeochemical Cycling and Microbial Communities in Native Grasslands:Responses to Climate Change and DefoliationDownload
Ongoing climate change has emerged as a major scientific challenge in the current century. Grassland ecosystems are considered net carbon (C) sinks to mitigate climate change. However, they are in turn, influenced by climate change and management practices, providing feedback to climate change...
In the summers of 1975, 1976, and 1977, several field investigations were carried out to determine the amounts of sulphur deposited in rain, in rain washing off trees, and by direct absorption of SO2 by soil. The impact of this sulphur deposition on soils in the AOSERP study area was also...
Electrodynamics of magnetosphere‐ionosphere coupling and feedback on magnetospheric field line resonancesDownload
We present a new dynamic model that describes coupling between standing inertial or ion-acoustic-gyroradius-scale shear Alfven waves, compressional modes, and auroral density disturbances. The model is applied to the excitation of field line resonances (FLRs) in dipolar and stretched geomagnetic...
A new interactive M-I coupling model that describes the dynamic interaction between magnetospheric dispersive waves, compressional modes, and auroral electron precipitations is applied to investigate the geomagnetic electromagnetic pulsations observed in Earth's magnetosphere in terms of...
Evaluation, analysis, and assessment of snowpack and precipitation data from a monitoring network in the AOSERP study areaDownload
The data and network operating procedures from the precipitation and snow sampling networks in the AOSERP area of Alberta were reviewed and assessed. The data was first reformatted into NAQUADAT format and then quality assured by several screening procedures including outlier tests, simultaneous...
Herbage yield and crude protein concentration of rangeland and pasture following liquid hog manure application in southeastern AlbertaDownload
Intensive hog production is expanding into semi-arid regions of Alberta, where perennial forage lands are increasingly targeted for manure applicati on despite limited guidelines for its efficient use. Herbage yield and crude protein were assessed over two consecutive years within two native...
This thesis develops an optimal interpolation method that takes daily precipitation values collected from weather stations and produces precipitation estimates on a grid. The method, called Hybrid 2.0, combines EOF-based linear interpolation with the nearest-station method. Gridded monthly...
In March 1976, the first in a series of intensive field studies was carried out in the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program study area in northeastern Alberta to examine the fine structure of the atmosphere and dispersion characteristics under winter conditions. The study comprised...
