Two versions of the mesoscale, one-level, primitive equations wind model of Danard (1977) have been adapted to northeastern Alberta. The model starts from a surface wind obtained from a balance between large-scale pressure gradient, Coriolis, and frictional forces. The surface temperatures and...
The dispersal of saline groundwater in the Beaver Creek Diversion System is described using data from a two-year physical limnology monitor of the system. Emphasis is placed on processes influencing temporal and spatial patterns in circulation, stratification and saline water distributions....
In many respects, the climate of northeastern Alberta resembles that of the central portions of the province. It is generally somewhat cooler, especially In winter, and precipitation is slightly less. The area has a very definite continental climate and its distance from the Pacific Ocean and the...
A study of the winds of the Alberta Tar Sands region was performed by the MEP Company from 1974 to 1976. The objectives of this study were to establish the wind climatology of the region in order to predict the dispersion of emissions from the Syncrude plant. Detailed studies of the vertical,...
The wind tunnel simulation of atmospheric dispersion on the Syncrude plant site encompassed four different problem areas: low level sources within the plant itself, the main stack plume, peak levels of time varying concentration, and the effect of wind shear on plume rise. For all of these...

Understanding strategies for maximizing foraging efficiency is central to behavioural ecology. The theoretical optimal olfactory search is crosswind, however empirical evidence of anemotaxis (orientation to wind) among carnivores is sparse. Polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is a sea ice dependent...
