AbstractContext: Active port of Kitimat (BC's North Coast) is a gateway for the export of Canada's energy resources (LNG etc.) to international markets. Current and future projects translate into dramatically increased tanker traffic in Douglas Channel for decades to come.
Objectives: Baseline of natural variability in Douglas Channel (e.g., temperature, productivity) on seasonal to millennial time scales; Capacity of in-situ microbial communities to mitigate accidentally-released petroleum products under reduced O2 and lower pH conditions.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This is the fifth year for the project leaders of the Environmental Geoscience Program (EGP) from the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) within Natural Resources Canada to present their annual scientific updates. Twelve power point presentations illustrate all the project status of all research going on within EGP. Subjects are connected to the following key words: Volcanoes, mercury, dredge disposal at sea, oil spills, diluted bitumen, oil sands, aquifer impacts, induced seismicity, geological storage of carbon, cobalt, climate change, Mackenzie River Basin, permafrost thaw, permafrost geochemistry, and cumulative effects.
