Flow dynamics of the Campbell River estuary by Alard Ages( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An analysis of the physical oceanography in the Campbell River estuary was carried out to support a habitat assessment for juvenile salmon. In this report, we discuss the interaction between tides and discharges and their effect upon the movement of the salt wedge, and examine conditions which would generate mixing across the halocline. Other aspects of the salinity intrusion such as its upstream limit and the effect of the topography upon the salinity distribution are discussed. Finally, we present a method to compute volume transport of salt water by combining a split one-dimensional numerical model with observed salinity profiles
Physical and chemical data collected in the Bering and Chukchi Seas in July 2003( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Physical and chemical water properties in the Bering and Chukchi Seas were measured as part of the Joint Western Arctic Climate Study (JWACS) in a science expedition in July of 2003 aboard the CCGS Sir Wilfrid Laurier during the ship's transit to the Arctic (Institute of Ocean Sciences Cruise Number 2003-18). Objectives of the program were to investigate changing conditions on the continental shelf of the Bering and Chukchi Sea, inter-annual variability of water properties, distribution and concentration of bacteria and benthic parameters from sediment sampling. This data report presents a cruise summary, lists the parameters sampled, the analysis methods used and results obtained for physical and chemical properties from the data and samples collected in CTD/rosette casts. The CTD profiles include data for pressure, temperature, salinity, light transmission and fluorescence. The rosette water sample analysis results include concentrations of salinity, nutrients, chlorophyll, oxygen isotope (18O), barium, particulate DMSP and phytoplankton pigments. Bottle samples collected but not included in this report are listed. The report includes a diagram of the instrumented mooring deployed."--Document

Determination of trace metals in estuarine sediment pore waters containing high concentrations of iron by Joe Thompson( Book )

4 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A double extraction schema for the preconcentration of trace metals in estuarine sediment pore waters containing high concentrations of iron has been developed using Freon TF and the ligand mixture of ammonium pyrrolidine carbodithioate ("APDC") and diethylammonium carbodithioate ("DDDC"). This method differs from similar procedures for seawater in three important ways: 1) The ratio of ligand to sample volume; 2) The composition of the extractant solvent; and, 3) The buffer. Ligand volume ratio was increased to accommodate high Fe concentrations that would interfere with quantitative recovery of other analytes. The solvent was modified by the addition of 10% CHCl₃ to permit dissolution of an Fe-carbodithioate complex which was identified qualitatively by SEM/EDX and synthesis in the laboratory. Citrate buffer replaced acetate due to its superior iron complexing property. The analysis of the fmal aqueous acid extract for cadmium, cobalt, copper, lead and zinc, and examples of field data are presented
Recovering resident killer whales : a guide to contaminant sources, mitigation, and regulations in British Columbia by C Garrett( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British Columbia's killer whales comprise several distinct populations with unique ecological needs. The two resident killer whale populations consume only fish, notably Chinook salmon. Both populations face conservation-level risks including reduced prey abundance, noise and disturbance, and very high levels of contaminants in their tissues. This document provides an overview of the types and sources of contaminants of concern in British Columbia, and identifies the legislation and agencies responsible for their oversight. While not all-inclusive, this review is intended to assist in the design of a SARA-based Action Plan, and to guide stakeholders in efforts to conserve killer whales for future generations.--Document
Ocean ecology data report : coastal waters off southwest Vancouver Island spring and summer 1980 by S. H Hill( Book )

Salinity intrusion in the Fraser River Observations of salinities, temperatures and currents by profiles and bottom time series 1988, 1989 by Alard Ages( Book )

14 editions published between 1988 and 1994 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report is a sequel to report 126 that presented some general time series and profiles at stations in the Main Arm of the Fraser River as well as profiles taken from a hovercraft. Extensive studies of local sediment transport and pollution required additional information in certain reaches, initiating further field work in the Main Arm in 1988 and 1989. The profiles and the time series taken near the river bottom measured water velocities near the head of the advancing salt wedge using the same CSTDV instrument but with a more sophisticated data logger. Much of the data acquisition concentrated on Steveston Bend where Public Works Canada is involved in the design of hydraulic structures to widen the navigation channel
ZOOPLANKTON DISTRIBUTION AND ASSOCIATED BIOLOGICAL, PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL DATA - BARKLEY SOUND, VANCOUVER ISLAND, MAY AND JUNE 1989 (MASS PROGRAM) by Canada( Book )

10 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The marine survival of salmon (MASS) program is an interdisciplinary study aimed at understanding the relationships between physical and biological oceanographic events and the dispersal and survival of salmon during their early sea life. A major effort within the MASS program has been directed at processes within Barkley Sound, on the west cost of Vancouver Island. This report presents data collected during May and June 1989 surveying the distribution, abundance and size frequency of zooplankton and investigating the underlying biological and oceanographic processes controlling the zooplankton community. Maps of the surface distribution of zooplankton biomass by size category, salinity, temperature and chlorophyll fluorescence obtained by a flow-through sampling system are provided. The report also includes zooplankton abundance and size distribution determined from vertical net haul samples, together with biological, physical and chemical observations CTD casts and discrete water bottled samples
Physical and chemical data from the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, August 23 to September 8, 1999( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides the data retrieved from the expedition aboard the CCGS Sir Wilfrid Laurier from August 23 to September 8, 1999 (Institute of Ocean Sciences Mission Number 1999-24). This expedition was done in order to study freshwater transport and the flux of carbon and nutrients in the Amundsen Gulf and Peel Sound, two of the three main sub-basins of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago (CAA). The key objectives were: to study sub-basin circulation and transport of freshwater through Peel Sound, Coronation Gulf and Amundsen Gulf; to investigate buoyancy boundary currents in the study area; to estimate the productivity and carbon flux in Amundsen Gulf and Peel Sound; to collect geochemical tracer samples from rivers flowing into the study area; and to evaluate the feasibility of collecting methane samples from permafrost lakes by inflatable boat.--Document

SALINITY INTRUSION IN THE CAMPBELL RIVER ESTUARY SALINITY, TEMPERATURE AND CURRENT OBSERVATIONS 1984-1986 by Alard Ages( Book )

4 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Campbell River estuary is located on the east coast of Vancouver Island and is a significant rearing area for juvenile chinook salmon, although the area has been jeopardized by industrial activities for many years. When B.C. Forest Products Ltd. (now Fletcher Challenge) proposed to modernize its log handling operation, the company agreed to rehabilitate the area that had previously been used for log handling. Upon completion of these measures, a long-term program was undertaken to examine the biological implications. Salinities, temperatures and currents in the estuary were surveyed from 1984-86. This report presents further data results in tables and profile plots from that survey

Climate change assessment in the Arctic Basin, part 1 : trends and projections - a contribution to the Aquatic Climate Change Adaptation Program by N Steiner( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Within the Aquatic Climate Change Adaptation Services Program (ACCASP), past trends and future projections of key climatic variables such as air and water temperature, precipitation, winds and storms, sea ice and biogeochemical variables are assessed. The assessment forms the basis for the impact, vulnerabilities, and opportunities analysis needed to increase our understanding of the impacts of climate change on the marine ecosystem and departmental operations and enable adaptation in support of DFO's strategic outcomes. This report summarizes observed trends and projections on a 50-year timescale for the Arctic region, including the four marine basins of the Beaufort Sea, Canadian Polar Shelf, Baffin Bay/Davis Strait and Hudson Bay as well as the predominately terrestrial Mackenzie Basin. To evaluate past trends, national and international data archives (which include land-based station data and cruise data) as well as publications, reports, and earlier assessments have been used. Limited observations in the Arctic, especially for ecosystem variables, lead to significant gaps and limitations in the assessment. Future projections are mostly derived from global models, which give a general tendency and range of expected future changes, but lack local details
Oil spill trajectory on the northern British Columbia coast : results from a series of numerical simulations by Isaac Fine( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this study, the movement of oil spilled on the east shores of Hecate Strait, British Columbia, is simulated using a local implementation of the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS) and the Larval TRANSport Lagrangian model (LTRANS). The oil droplets are represented as neutral buoyancy particles and their movement is forced by the ocean currents and diffusion by ocean turbulence. Statistical properties of the mean distribution of the particles are presented, as well as their seasonal variability. The simplified approach used in this study allows one to estimate the part of oil movement directly forced by the ocean circulation, i.e. due to the wind, tides and density-induced ocean currents.--Includes text from document
