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.
Baseline of natural variability in Douglas Channel (e.g., temperature, O2, productivity) on seasonal to millennial time scales.
of in-situ microbial communities to mitigate accidentally-released petroleum products under reduced O2and lower pH conditions.
