A fisheries and water quality survey of ten lakes in the Richardson Tower area, Northeastern Alberta. Vol II: DataDownload
A fisheries and water quality survey was conducted in September 1979 on 10 small lakes (67.4 to 338.9 hal in the vicinity of Richardson Tower, approximately 140 km north of Fort McMurray, Alberta). The major objectives were: (1) to determine morphometric and water quality characteristics in...
A laboratory study of long-term effects of mine depressurization groundwater on fish and invertebratesDownload
This study was conducted to determine long-term toxic effects, on selected species of fish and invertebrates, of mine depressurization at concentrations non-lethal in acute toxicity tests. The study also includes chronic toxicity experiments, studies of sublethal effects of groundwater, and a...
A longitudinal physico-chemical and algal survey of five rivers flowing through the AOSERP study areaDownload
Studies concentrating upon the epilithon were conducted in five tributary rivers flowing into the Athabasca River: the Muskeg, Steepbank, Hangingstone, MacKay, and Ells rivers. The species composition of the epilithic algae was determined during June to November 1978. Diatoms and blue-green...
A co-ordinated plan is proposed for the identification of toxic emissions from oil sand developments in the AOSERP study area. Interviews with over 40 specialists in various fields relevant to this study developed essentially no confirmed awareness of existing biological stresses due to...
This predictive study is based on the results of the first year of data collection respecting the meteorological factors that may influence the dispersion of atmospheric emissions in and through the air over the Athabasca Tar Sands region executed by MEP under contract to Shell Canada Ltd.,...
A preliminary investigation into the magnitude of fog occurrence and associated problems in the oil sands areaDownload
Water and ice fogs were investigated for the existing situation (GCOS) and a potential situation (GCOS, Syncrude, plus three more plants). Based on meteorological and historical fog data, Fort McMurray Airport experiences 4 to 5 days with ice fog and 18 total days with fog per year. There is...
A preliminary review of black bear – human interactions and recommended strategies for the AOSERP study areaDownload
The purpose of the report was to examine the components which have resu1ted in the establishment and maintenance of nuisance bear populations (i.e., the interaction between bears and a food supply generated by man's activity), and the management strategies which may be implemented to reduce the...
A preliminary study of chemical and microbial characteristics of the Athabasca River in the Athabasca oil sands area of northeastern AlbertaDownload
A literature review and evaluation of methods used to determine rates of bacterial uptake (heterotrophic assimilation) of organic substrates in fresh water systems was undertaken. The uptake of a \"universal\" substrate - radiolabelled glutamic acid - was determined in order to assess the effects...
Limited time and access constraints restricted this preliminary vegetation survey to Townships 85-103, Ranges 6-12, west of the 4th meridian. This area centres on sites of maximum development north of Fort McMurray (i .e. the GCOS and Sync rude leases). Eighty-four stands were chosen as...
A review and assessment of the baseline data relevant to the impacts of oil sands developments on large mammals in the AOSERP study areaDownload
The available baseline data which are relevant to the documentation and evaluation of the impacts on large mammals (moose, woodland caribou, wolf) which would result from oil sands development are reviewed. An approach to the analysis of impacts was developed to provide a logical framework for...
