Duck Lake Geolysimeter Precipitation Intercomparison

Craig D. Smith
The Duck Lake (Saskatchewan) Geolysimeter precipitation intercomparison data are from a co-located precipitation gauge and deep groundwater observation well. The data published here are event based intercomparisons, collected between 2010 and 2016, binned into rain and snow events. Snowfall data observed by the precipitation gauge have been adjusted for wind bias using the SPICE (Solid Precipitation InterComparison Experiment) transfer functions (Kochendorfer et al., 2017a) and included for intercomparison. The data is described by Smith et...

Canadian historical snow survey data

Ross Brown
In situ observations of snow water equivalent (SWE) from manual snow surveys and automated sensors are made at ~1000 sites across Canada in support of water resource planning for flood control and hydroelectricity production. These data represent an important source of information for research (e.g. validation of hydrological and climate model models), for applied studies (e.g. snow loads) and for climate monitoring. A data rescue effort in 1998 generated the first version of the Canadian...

Terraview and Willowfield Stormwater Pond Sediment and Water Quality

Quintin Rochfort & Dr. Lee Grapentine
Stormwater ponds have been widely used to control increased volumes and rates of surface runoff resulting from urbanization. Stormwater ponds have also been designed to provide multiple other benefits; including protection of downstream waters, sediment and habitat (land/aquatic) quality, provision of educational, recreational use as well as aesthetic amenities. Stormwater ponds create unique opportunities for enhancing community benefits, but they also cause ecological concerns with respect to the quality of the newly created habitat. Stormwater...

Saskatchewan Solid Precipitation Inter-Comparison Experiment (SPICE) Data

Craig D. Smith & Daqing Yang
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Solid Precipitation Inter-Comparison Experiment (SPICE) officially began in the (Northern Hemisphere) Fall of 2012 with the objective of characterizing and providing guidance on the performance of automated systems for the in situ measurement of solid precipitation (Nitu et al., 2012). Environment and Climate Change Canada hosted three intercomparison sites as contributions to SPICE, two of which (Bratt’s Lake and Caribou Creek) are located in Saskatchewan. The Caribou Creek site is...

Nutrient Concentrations at the Bay of Quinte (Ontario) for August 26, 2015

Richards, Agnes, PhD
The Bay of Quinte is a long and narrow "Z" shaped inlet located on the northern shore of Lake Ontario. The bay and the surrounding drainage basin were listed as an Area of Concern in 1987 under the GLWQA as 10 of the 14 beneficial use indicators of ecosystem health were deemed impaired. Excess nutrient runoff from agricultural lands, wastewater treatment plants and storm water contributed to extensive algae growth; one of the biggest challenges...

Historical 12 month Standardized Precipitation Evapotranspiration Index across Canada

Barrie Bonsal
Persistent, large-area droughts are among Canada’s costliest natural disasters, having major impacts on sectors such as agriculture, industry, forestry, recreation, human health and society, and ecosystems. This dataset provides 50 km gridded, 12-month Standardized Precipitation Evapotranspiration Index (SPEI) values across land regions of Canada. Over southern areas of the country (south of 60°N) data are from 1900-2011 while in northern areas, the time period is shorter (approximately 1950-2011). The SPEI is a commonly used drought...

Nutrients in Great Lakes Priority Tributaries Data

Daryl McGoldrick
Water quality monitoring data collected in priority tributaries to provide nutrient concentration data to estimate nutrient loads to the waters of the Great Lakes. Data is collected to advance the science to understand and address the complex problem of recurrent toxic and nuisance algae in the Great Lakes. The majority of the data is focused on Lake Erie, the smallest, shallowest of the Great Lakes, and most susceptible to nearshore water quality issues. Water quality...

Hamilton Harbour AOC Sediment Exposure to Fathead Minnow

Joanne Parrott & Patty Gillis Adrienne Bartlett
This dataset contains the growth and survival data for Fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) exposed to sediment from twelve sites within the Hamilton Harbour Area of Concern, as well as reference sediment (a mixture of sediment from two reference sites within Lake Erie, Long Point Marsh and Long Point Bay). The embryo-larval Fathead minnow exposure occurred over a three week period. Exposure was done from the egg stage (which lasted 5 days) to 9 and 16...

Honey Harbour and Tadenac Bay Water Quality 2013 to 2016

David Depew
Off shore waters of Georgian rarely experience excessive nutrient concentrations however, small embayments such as Honey Harbour, North and South Bay have experienced oxygen depletion, increased total phosphorus, a decrease in water clarity and the presence of filamentous attached algae. Low water levels in southern Georgian Bay along with temperature and hydrologic changes represent additional water quality and aquatic habitat management challenges.To address these issues the Government of Canada initiated the Lake Simcoe / South-eastern...

Taste and Odour Data Lake Ontario 1999 to 2010

Arthur Zastepa / Chris Marvin
Lake Ontario is the primary source of drinking water for millions of people. Undesirable taste and odour events may occur in late summer as a result of the release of two volatile organic compounds geosmin (trans-1,10-dimethyl-trans-9-decalol) and 2-Methylisoborneol(1,6,7,7-tetramethylbicyclo[2.2.1]heptan-6-ol) (MIB). These secondary metabolites are produced by actinomycetes and cyanobacteria and yield a musty or earthy taste and odour. These compounds can be detected at very low concentrations (~4 ng/L). Here we present Geosmin, MIB, nutrients and...

Pollutant Release and Transfer Data Reported by Facilities, Single Year Tabular Format - National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI)

Paulo Costa & NPRI HelpDesk
The National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) is Canada's public inventory of pollutant releases (to air, water and land), disposals and transfers for recycling. This file contains the most commonly used NPRI data fields, within a simplified tabular format, including all facility-reported pollutant releases, disposals and transfers for recycling for a given year, listed by facility and substance. There are important factors that should be considered prior to the use and interpretation of NPRI data. Additional...

Hamilton Harbour Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler data

Dr Cheng He
Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler(ADCP) data was collected during the summer months of 2017 in the Randle Reef area of Hamilton Harbor. The data is used to validate a three dimensional MIKE3-FM hydrodynamic and mud transport modeling system. The model is used to study the hydrodynamic circulation, transport and fate of spilled dredged material around Randle Reef area of Hamilton Harbor.

Hamilton Harbour Water Quality Data 1987 to 2017

David Depew
Hamilton Harbour is located at the west end of Lake Ontario It was designated as one of 43 Areas of Concern in 1987 under the GLWQA where 11 beneficial uses of the harbour were deemed impaired. One of the primary recommendations of the Hamilton Harbour Remedial Action Plan was to decrease nutrient loads to Hamilton Harbour and establish water quality targets to decrease undesirable algae and improve water clarity. This long term data set consists...
