The slow movement of historic landslides is a constant reality in the Thompson River Valley, with twelve such slides located within ten kilometers of the town of Ashcroft, B.C. alone. Beginning at the end of the 19th century, numerous rapid slope failures were reported by local residents and the...
Monitoring of environmental conditions in and around oil sands developments has been underway for years. However, recent reviews have indicated the need for a more comprehensive, scientifically-rigourous and transparent monitoring program and have provided recommendations for design and...
The increasing use of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) over the past few years has opened the door to a large number of applications in research, commercial, and industrial areas. UAVs have become an efficient, cost effective, and environmentally friendly (less or zero CO2 emissions) platform...
Intensive studies of moose were conducted on a 25 000 km study area in northeastern Alberta from January 1976 to June 1978. Sixty-six moose (Alces alces) were radio-collared and another eight were colour-marked only. The population is either stationary or slowly declining. An estimate of 4595...
The purpose of this study was to prepare ecological habitat working maps at a scale of 1:50,000 from false colour infrared photographs of the AOSERP study area obtained in 1977, and to evaluate multispectral and multistage remote sensing techniques for application to mapping and monitoring in the...
The objective of this research was to evaluate recent advances in active microwave remote sensing technologies in order to further refine the optimal radar parameters for sea ice monitoring in support of marine operations and climate research. To achieve this objective, data from recent active...
Masters thesis. Presented as two papers: "Enhanced Landsat Thematic Mapper. Imagery for Exploration Geology in the Wheaton District, Southern Yukon" and "The Perception and Enhancement of Depth in the Monoscopic Remotely Sensed Images."
Carbon and water fluxes are essential components of biospheric processes which directly or indirectly influence climate, surface energy balance, hydrologic processes and hence influence the vegetation productivity, distribution and characteristics. In this research, promising techniques for...
This project undertook an assessment of the potential for using satellite imagery to determine water quality parameters in the southwest end of Lake Athab8sca and to provide a mathematical model capable of simulating the circulation patterns in this area of the lake. A substantial amount of field...
Terrestrial vegetation contributes strongly to dynamic biosphere-atmosphere exchanges of mass and energy, through activities such as photosynthesis, that help shape the Earth’s climate. The boreal forest is located in high latitudes and subject to large seasonal temperature fluctuations and a...
