AbstractContext
Active port of Kitimat (BC's North Coast) is a gateway for the export of Canada's energyresources (LNG, dilbit) to international markets. Current and future projects translate into dramatically increased tanker traffic in Douglas Channel for decades to come.
Knowledge gaps/Objectives
Baseline of natural variability in Douglas Channel (e.g., temperature, O2, productivity) on seasonal to millennial time scales.
Capacity of in-situ microbial communities to mitigate accidentally-released petroleum products under reduced O2and lower pH conditions.
