AbstractA multidisciplinary and multi-institutional project was initiated in the Fox Creek area (west-central Alberta) in April 2019 to study environmental impacts of hydrocarbon development activities. The initial objective was to specifically study potential impacts on shallow groundwater. However, different Sectors within NRCan later identified the Fox Creek area as a region of interest for developing regional cumulative effects evaluation methods in support of new impact assessment legislation. Therefore, the project scope is now much larger and includes studies on vegetation, forest, snow cover, wetlands, landscape evolution and woodland caribou habitat. The project involves many collaborators from the federal and provincial governments, and academia. This project is supported by both the GGP and EGP programs and is also funded by the Cumulative Effects initiative.
Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
On October 14, 2020 all project leaders under the GGP intended to present virtually the status of their research to all NRCan employees wanting to attend. Due to technical difficulties the event was cancelled. All five of the PowerPoint presentations prepared for this event are included in this synthesis and the pre-recorded presentations can be seen on YouTube via this link: Key words: groundwater classification, methods development, groundwater portal, characterization, shallow aquifers, Fox Creek, water resource, modelling, Ring of Fire and assessment.
