High-Resolution Meteorological Forcing Data for Hydrological Modelling and Climate Change Impact Analysis in Mackenzie River Basin

Zilefac Elvis Asong, Howard Wheater, John Pomeroy, Alain Pietroniro, Mohamed Elshamy, Daniel Princz & Alex Cannon
This dataset provides an improved set of forcing data for large scale hydrological models for climate change impacts assessment in Mackenzie River Basin (MRB). The best available gridded data in the MRB is from the high resolution forecasts of the Global Environmental Multiscale (GEM) atmospheric model and outputs of the Canadian Precipitation Analysis (CaPA), but these datasets have a short historical record. The EU WATCH ERA-Interim reanalysis (WFDEI) has a longer historical record, but has...

Aggregate hydraulic conductivity data from site investigations in south-central Saskatchewan, Canada

David M. Ferris, Grant A.G. Ferguson & Gregory Potter
Pleistocene-aged glacial till aquitards are important shallow hydrogeological units across much of the Northern Hemisphere. Characterizing the hydrogeological properties of these aquitards at a regional scale is important for land use planning and resource management. Here, 606 hydraulic conductivity data points from 20 sites collected from 26 reports are compiled. The referencing information, spatial location, hydraulic conductivity test type, and any other information associated with the hydraulic conductivity data is included where possible. After filtering...

Aggregated gridded bedrock depth dataset for Mackenzie and Nelson-Churchill River Basin based on bedrock data by Shangguan et al. (2017)

Kuljeet Keshav, Amin Haghnegahdar, Mohamed Elshamy, Shervan Gharari & Saman Razavi
The bedrock dataset created by Shangguan et al. (2017) is aggregated to a lower resolution (larger pixels) of 0.125 degree for Mackenzie and Nelson-Churchill River Basins for its applicability with Hydrology and Land Surface Models. This dataset is in particular generated for using with MESH (Modélisation Environnementale communautaire - Surface Hydrology), a distributed coupled hydrology-land surface model developed by Environment and Climate Change Canada, as applied to Mackenzie and Nelson-Churchill River Basins. The statistics calculated...

Bow River at Banff (05BB001) Stage and Discharge Measurements

Paul Whitfield & John Pomeroy
Stage Discharge measurements and metadata for 1091 stage discharge measurements made from 1909 to 1986 were extracted from paper records and combined with the 387 made between 1987 and 2015 that were available in electronic form. Measurements had been recorded in Imperial units from 1909 to 1976; these were extracted and put into electronic form and then converted to metric units.

A multi-scale meteorological dataset of the June 2013 flood in Southern Alberta, Canada

Vincent Vionnet, Vincent Fortin, Etienne Gaborit, Guy Roy, Maria Abrahamowicz, Nicolas Gasset & John W Pomeroy
From June 19 to June 22, 2013, intense rainfall and concurrent snowmelt led to devastating floods in the Canadian Rockies, foothills and downstream areas of southern Alberta (Canada). The complexity of the topography in the upper catchments and the presence of snow at high elevations made, among other factors, hydrological forecasting challenging for this extreme event. This dataset contains an ensemble of variables at different resolutions (10, 2.5 and 1 km) that can be used...

An ensemble of 500 time series of weekly flows from 1600-2001 for the four sub-basins of the Saskatchewan River Basin generated through disaggregating tree-ring reconstructed flow.

Andrew Slaughter & Saman Razavi
Biennial flow reconstructions generated through multiple linear regression relationships between flow and tree-ring chronologies extending from 1600–2001 were disaggregated to weekly by identifying two-year periods in the naturalised reference flow broadly similar to that of the reconstructed flow. The weekly flow distribution of the identified naturalised reference flow period was used to construct the weekly flow. Scaling methods were used to re-introduce some of the variability in yearly flows lost during the disaggregation process. The...

Fortress Mountain Snow Laboratory, Blowing Snow Camera Measurements, and Wind Velocity Data

Nikolas Aksamit & John Pomeroy
These data files include airborne blowing snow density measurements using a portable highspeed camera and 432 nm wavelength laser light plane apparatus. Blowing snow measurements were taken in the first 30 mm above the snow surface. Approx 30 cm away in the spanwise direction across the mean wind direction were two Campbell Scientific CSAT3 sonic anemometers situated on a single mast. The anemometers sampled raw measurements at 50 Hz. The height about snow for the...

Eradication of Contaminant Starch Granules from Synthetic Calculus: A Decontamination Protocol for Ancient Starch Research

Maria Soto, Jamie Inwood, Siobhan Clarke, Alison Crowther, Patrick Lee, Julien Favreau, Robert Patalano, Makarius Itambu, Aloyce Mwambwiga & Julio Mercader
Dental calculus provides ancient starch research a niche where granules may be adsorbed to minerals, coated, overgrown, entrapped or protected from chemical degradation. While encapsulation offers protection from degradation, it does not shield the sample’s surface from contamination. The most common approach to retrieving microbotanical particles from archaeological calculus has been the direct decalcification of the sample, after a cleaning stage variously consisting of immersion in water, acids, and mechanical dislodgment via gas, sonication, and/or...

The Environmental Context of the Earliest Acheulean at Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania

Robert Patalano
Water, vegetation, and human habitats are tightly coupled, and Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania is an exceptional locality for examining evolutionary events that associate with water availability and environmental stability or change. This project investigates interactions between and among paleo-hydrology, habitat type, and the human response to changing environmental settings. The objective is to interpret the climate and environmental context of the oldest Acheulean stone tool industry at Olduvai Gorge using plant leaf wax lipid marker molecules,...

Raw data and video outputs from a CE-QUAL-W2 hydrodynamic and nutrient model for different Lake Diefenbaker Reservoir withdrawal depth scenarios

Amir Sadeghian, Meghan Carr, Karl-Erich Lindenschmidt & Luis Morales-Marin
The Lake Diefenbaker CE-QUAL-W2 model has 87 horizontal segments starting at Saskatchewan highway 4 at the upstream extending to the Gardiner Dam and the Qu’Appelle Dam at downstream, and one-meter vertical layers with a maximum of 60 layers at the deepest point near the Gardiner Dam. Gardiner dam outflow is either via metalimnetic withdrawal through hydroelectric turbines or via a spillway during brief high flow periods. The current operational withdrawal depth of approximately 34m was...
