Observations of seawater temperature and salinity at British Columbia shore stations, 1973 by L. F Giovando( Book )

22 editions published between 1978 and 1987 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surface oceanic salinities and temperatures have been recordedonce a day at several locations on the coast of British Columbiafor varying lengths of time--from about one year to severaldecades. This publication presents the data obtained in 1984from seventeen such shore stations. The data obtained arepresently in two forms. Firstly, tables provide, for each site, the monthly means and the associated standard deviations, as wellas the maximum and minimum values recorded during each month; theannual means are also listed. Secondly, graphs indicate thebehaviour, throughout the year, of the data after the higher-frequency oscillations (e.g., those associated with lunar tides)have been removed by the use of a seven-day normally-weightedrunning mean

"Under the terms of Canada's Oceans Act (1997), Fisheries and Oceans Canada has embarked on an approach to Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM) which aims to protect the structure, function, and quality of marine ecosystems from human impacts. This report aims to provide the reader with an overview of the contaminant sources, types, and risks in the Pacific North Coast Integrated Management Area (PNCIMA) as these relate to marine environmental quality (MEQ), and builds on two previously published reports generated for sub-regions of the PNCIMA."--Document
Pelagic seabird population in Dixon Entrance by Kees Vermeer( Book )

5 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marine bird surveys were conducted during May and July 1981; May, June and July, 1983; and Janury, April and October 1984. Thesesurveys yielded the following values of pelagic bird densitiesper 100 square km: 20 birds in January; 70 in April; 80 to 370 inMay; 70 in July; and 30 in October. Standing stock of seabirdswas highest in May. Ancient Murrelets (Synthliboramphusantiquus) and Cassin's Auklets (Ptychoramphus aleuticus)comprised most of the standing stock. Recommendations are madethat 1) no offshore drilling take place in the vicinity ofcolonies during the nesting period, 2) systematic seabird surveysbe conducted before drilling, and 3) preferred feeding locationsbe investigated

Trouble at the top of the food chain : environmental contaminants and health risks in marine mammals : a white paper on research priorities for Fisheries and Oceans Canada by Peter S Ross( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marine mammals comprise a number of species that are vulnerable to adverse health effects associated with exposure to environmental contaminants, notably those considered to be persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT; includes various organic and metallic contaminants). Understanding how different chemical contaminants move into marine mammal food webs, and what the impacts of these are on the health of marine mammals or their prey, represent two fundamental knowledge needs for scientists, conservationists, managers and regulators. Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) plays a vital role in the stewardship of the 40+ marine mammal species inhabiting Canadian waters. This document describes the priority research needs for DFO which include contaminant biomarker development and application ("health effects"), pathways research to understand why marine mammals become highly contaminated and to assess the potential effects of climate variation on exposure, an ecosystem context which documents the conservation impacts of toxic chemicals, the assessment of emerging contaminant risks to marine mammals, and exposure assessments in vulnerable environments such as the Arctic.--Includes text from document
On the hydroacoustically inferred morphology of Arctic ice by J.E Papadakis( Book )

4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of Arctic ice morphological characteristics is of importance because of applications associated with transportation, pollution, construction of structure (intended to survive the Arctic conditions), military uses of underwater sound, the heat budget and other physical processes. This report investigates the underside morphology of Arctic iceby hydroacoustical methods, giving general information on such methods, detailing existing information about Arctic ice morphology, varioustheoretical approaches to form and structure, a summary of the scattering ofsound waves from irregular surfaces, and related information on mediuminhomogeneities
The physical oceanography of Bridport Inlet, N.W.T by Paul Greisman( Book )

8 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time series measurements of currents, water properties and wateT levels from 1979 and 1980 were analysed. The currents within the Inlet cannot be resolved adequately by direct measurement or by dynamic height computations, while the currents at the Inlet eritrancerarely exceed 12 cm s -1. The exchange of salt through the Inlet entrance appears to be driven by densification of the water within the Inlet due to brine rejection from growing sea ice. The convective processes are not clearly indicated by the vertical density profiles, but rather the system is dominated by horizontal advection and probably by intermittent convection. There is a very pronounced interannual variability in the vertical stratification of the Inlet
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

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. L 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
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

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
