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 )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 53 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

Guidelines for processing RBR CTD profiles by Mark Halverson( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"RBR conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) profilers provide high quality data straight from the instrument without post-processing. However, as we will show, applying additional processing steps, such as carefully aligning the sensors in time, will improve the data and reduce artifacts such as salinity spiking. Unlike Seabird Electronics, RBR does not presently make available any software or guidelines to help with the processing, although their Matlab software, rsktools, will eventually have this functionality. After speaking with staff at RBR, and a number of RBR users in the oceanographic community, it became clear that there are steps which should be taken to ensure high quality data. Staff scientists at the Hakai Institute, a scientific research institution that conducts long-term research at remote locations on the coastal margin of British Columbia, convened two workshops consisting of experienced RBR and Seabird users to share data processing procedures and to develop a standard post-processing workflow. Application of this workflow to data from a properly calibrated RBR profiler will ensure it is of the highest quality, and therefore suitable for publication in peer-reviewed literature and for distribution to data archives"--Introd., p. 1
Suspended particulate matter in Douglas Channel from MODIS and MERIS ocean colour data by G Lazin( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report documents remote sensing activities related to the oceanography component of the World Class Tanker Safety Program with the aim of investigating spatial and temporal patterns of suspended particulate matter concentration (SPM, g/m3) in the surface waters of Douglas Channel using ocean colour satellite images. Douglas Channel is one of the principal inlets on the north-west coast of British Colombia that is part of the Kitimat fjord system. It is about 140 km-long and is used as a shipping route that extends from the ocean (Hecate Strait) to the Kitimat international port located at its head. Further plans for development include a proposed oil pipeline with a terminal at Kitimat, from where the oil would be shipped along the channel by marine tankers, which has raised environmental concerns regarding oil spills. Our study of the SPM distribution complements scientific investigations addressing oil spills in the region, since suspended particles under certain conditions can interact with oil droplets by forming sinking oil-particle aggregates that can transport oil from the surface to the bottom"--Introd., p. 1
A benthic habitat template for Pacific Canada's continental shelf by Edward J Gregr( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Classifications of the marine environment are essential to inform marine spatial planning strategies such as protected area designation, and can support assessments of the cumulative impacts of human activities and the development of species-habitat associations. The benthic habitat template developed here for the shelf waters (30 - 500 m) of Canada's Pacific coast is one such classification. The template differs from more common correlation-based approaches in that it uses hypotheses grounded in functional ecology to integrate physical data into a functional description of the benthic environment. We adapted methods originally used on Canada's Atlantic coast to the available data and unique characteristics of Canada's Pacific coast. We found the habitat template correlated better with benthic diversity than linear geographic distance, corroborating earlier findings from Atlantic Canada. The habitat template, particularly the Disturbance axis, was negatively correlated with the Shannon-Weiner biodiversity index, showing that high disturbance habitats are less diverse. These results demonstrate that the template, by considering the influence of physical drivers on functional adaptation in the classification process, represents an ecologically relevant classification of the marine environment. As such, it has the potential to contribute to Canada's Marine Protected Area strategy by identifying areas of rarity, high diversity, and representativity, important determinants of Ecologically or Biologically Significant Areas (EBSAs). Also, the ability to correlate species diversity with distance provides a way to quantitatively identify ecologically significant regional boundaries, something that is critical to understanding the ecology on the coast, and a potentially important refinement to questions of representativity. We expect both the habitat template and the associated sediment grain size model to serve key roles for marine spatial planning on Canada's Pacific Coast."--Abstract

A review of models in support of oil and gas exploration off the north coast of British Columbia by M. G. G Foreman( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 42 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
