A 15,800-year record of atmospheric lead deposition on the Devon Island Ice Cap, Nunavut, Canada: Natural and anthropogenic enrichments, isotopic composition, and predominant sourcesDownload
Abstract: Using appropriate clean methods for handling and preparation, 57 ice samples from the Devon Island Ice Cap, representing the period 134 to 15,800 years before present (BP), were analyzed for Pb, Sc, and Pb isotopes (Pb-206, Pb-207, Pb-208) using ICP-SMS. The greatest Pb concentrations...
In a short period of time, the conversation around handling woody materials – deadwood such as logs, branches and stumps – has shifted dramatically. From piling and burning, to mulching and now towards keeping ‘whole logs’ on sites. The changes have led to confusion and this guide is intended to...

A model - data intercomparison of CO2 exchange across North America: Results from the North American Carbon Program site synthesisDownload

Abstract: Our current understanding of terrestrial carbon processes is represented in various models used to integrate and scale measurements of CO2 exchange from remote sensing and other spatiotemporal data. Yet assessments are rarely conducted to determine how well models simulate carbon...
Long dry spells (sequences of dry days) are rare events, but they are important because they correlate significantly with the area burned during bad wildfire years. Previous attempts to model the frequency of dry spells have been successful for spells of short duration, but have failed for...
A model-data comparison of gross primary productivity: Results from the North American Carbon Program site synthesisDownload
Anderson, R., Poulter, B., Matamala, R., Lokipitiya, E., Chen, J.M., Verbeeck, H., Davis, K.J., Weng, E., Curtis, P.S., Tonitto, C., Munger, J.W., Ricciuto, D., Chen, J., Gu, L., Humphreys, E., Desai, A.R., Price, D.T., Raczka, B.M., Zhou, X., Peng, C., Torn, M., Hollinger, D.Y., Riley, W.J., Roulet, N., Black, A., Bolstad, P., Baker, I., Thornton, P., Monson, R., Jain, A., Law, B., Gough, C., Margolis, H.A., Dimitrov, D., Grant, R.F., Liu, S., McCaughey, J.H., Hilton, T.W., Sahoo, A., Dietze, M., Schaefer, K., Williams, C., Dragoni, D., Tian, H., Vargas, R., Schwalm, C.R., Richardson, A.D., Oechel, W., Kucharik, C., Barr, A., Altaf Arain, M.
Accurately simulating gross primary productivity (GPP) in terrestrial ecosystem models is critical because errors in simulated GPP propagate through the model to introduce additional errors in simulated biomass and other fluxes. We evaluated simulated, daily average GPP from 26 models against...
A study of the relation of meteorological variables to monthly provincial area burned by wildfire in Canada 1953-80Download
The relation between meteorological variables and the monthly area burned by wildfire from May to August 1953-80 in nine Canadian \"provinces\" was investigated. A purely statistical approach to estimating the monthly provincial area burned, using meteorological variables as predictors, succeeded...
Abstract: An improved corer and associated equipment for obtaining continuous samples of frozen peat are described. We developed the system through laboratory and field trials-on Bathurst Island, Nunavut, Canada in 2000 and Nordvesto, Carey Islands, Greenland, in 2001-as part of efforts to...
