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 are to determine: a baseline of natural variability in Douglas Channel (e.g., temperature, productivity) on seasonal to millennial time scales; the 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)
The goal of the Environmental Geoscience program (EGP) is to distinguish the environmental effects of natural resource development from those produced by natural processes, and to develop new approaches to support the sustainable use and development of Canada's natural resources through informed decision-making. The ultimate outcome of EGP is to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of Canadian environmental regulation and oversight. By developing innovative geoscience for environmental stewardship, as well as increasing public and private sector access to research findings, decision-makers have a greater capacity and are more empowered to carry out and review environmental assessments. This SP highlights the 5 public presentations provided on May 11, 2021 as well as all updates from all projects under the EGP.
