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.,...
Syncrude Canada Ltd. operates an oil sands extraction plant in the Athabasca Tar Sands region of northeastern Alberta. Although this facility is designed to maintain resulting ground level air quality within the objectives of Alberta Environment, exceedances of these objectives may occur in...
In early 1976 a literature review of low temperature fog was carried out so that the potential for this fog type in the vicinity of the Syncrude synthetic crude oil complex could be assessed. Moreover, a site visit under suitable synoptic meteorological conditions was made in early March 1976 to...
Hyperthermia worsens outcome after ischemia. While it seems reasonable that hyperthermia would also worsen outcome after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), clinical studies attempting to find a causative relationship between hyperthermia and outcome have been inconclusive. We induced ICH with an...
Can the solar cycle and climate synchronize the snowshoe hare cycle in Canada? Evidence from tree rings and ice coresDownload
Dark marks in the rings of white spruce less than 50 yr old in Yukon, Canada, are correlated with the number of stems browsed by snowshoe hares. The frequency of these marks is positively correlated with the density of hares in the same region. The frequency of marks in trees germinating between...
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,...
Coal Liquefaction Liquid Quality: Influence of Temperature and Heating Approach on Solvent Extraction of CoalDownload
This project evaluated the impact of reaction temperature and of additional heating steps on the quality of the liquids obtained from solvent extraction of a lignite coal with tetralin. The points of focus were the coal liquid yield, physical properties, aromatic content and iron pyrite...
Comparison of Chemical Suppressants under Different Atmosphere Temperatures for the Control of Fugitive Dust Emission on Mine Haul RoadsDownload
Dust generated from mine haul roads poses a severe health and safety threat to workers and the environment. Traditionally, to control the dust, water has been applied on mine haul roads. Although environmentally friendly, water lasts for a limited duration due to evaporation. As a result, water...
A device constructed by sandwiching a thin film of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-co-acrylic acid (pNIPAmco-AAc) microgels between two thin layers of Au (all on a glass support) was used as a novel platform for controlled release of small molecules (drugs). In this submission, the model drug tris...
Developing and Testing a Framework to Measure the Sanitation Efficacy on a Random Particle Level in Composting IndustryDownload
Both direct and indirect process validation regulations are being used to ensure the safety of compost products. The North American guidelines specify upper limits for certain pathogenic and indicator microbes, which are presumably achieved by exposing every particle of compost to temperatures...
