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 62 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 ( )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 61 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
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 P. S Ross ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 46 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
Marine environmental quality in the Pacific North Coast Integrated Management Area (PNCIMA), British Columbia, Canada : a summary of contaminant sources, types, and risks ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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

A review of models in support of oil and gas exploration off the north coast of British Columbia ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A state-of-the-art review of numerical models that would be needed to address scientific and environmental issues related to removing the moratorium on offshore oil and gas exploration for the waters off northern British Columbia is presented. Specific recommendations are made for circulation, ecosystem, oil spill, and drilling mud models. Complementary needs for more observations to validate these models and for the development of both a high resolution surface wave model and a high resolution atmospheric model, are also foreseen. It is anticipated that these recommendations will be useful when future science programs related to oil and gas exploration are developed
Draft and movement of pack ice in the Beaufort Sea, April 1990-March 1991 by Humfrey Melling ( Book )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The ice subsurface characterization project, a multi-year study of the motion and thickness of sea ice in the Beaufort Sea, was begun in April 1990. This report presents the measurements made during the first field year of the project, from April 1990 to March 1991. Observations were made using a four-beam Doppler sonar to measure the velocity of ice movement over the mooring and a narrow-beam ice profiling sonar to measure ice draft. Two sites on the Mackenzie continental shelf north of Tuktoyaktuk were instrumented, One near the middle of the shelf, and the other near the shelf edge. Ice motion measurements were obtained at both sites at all times during the 12-month deployment when sea ice was present. Measurements of ice draft were obtained only at the northern site during April and May 1990. From this location, a topographic profile across almost 350 km of sea ice was surveyed at 1 metre intervals. This profile and a variety of statistical measures of the thickness, topography, and motion of the ice field are presented
