Bedload sediment transport and morphologic data in semi-alluvial rivers conditioned by urbanization and stormwater management

Elli Papangelakis, Bruce MacVicar & Peter Ashmore
Watershed urbanization and stormwater management (SWM) alter the hydrologic and geomorphologic processes of rivers. This purpose of this study is to characterize the bedload sediment transport regime of semi-alluvial gravel-bed rivers, and how it is affected by watershed urbanization and common SWM strategies. Data was collected from three rivers in the Greater Toronto Area of Southern Ontario: Ganatsekaigon Creek (City of Pickering), Wilket Creek (City of Toronto), and Morningside Creek (City of Toronto). The grain...

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 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...

A Bias-Corrected 3-hourly 0.125 Gridded Meteorological Forcing Data Set (1979 – 2016) for Land Surface Modeling in North America

Zilefac Elvis Asong, Howard Wheater, John Pomeroy, Alain Pietroniro & Mohamed Elshamy
Cold regions hydrology is very sensitive to the impacts of climate warming. Future warming is expected to increase the proportion of winter precipitation falling as rainfall. Snowpacks are expected to undergo less sublimation, form later and melt earlier and possibly more slowly, leading to earlier spring peak streamflow. More physically realistic and sophisticated hydrological models driven by reliable climate forcing can provide the capability to assess hydrologic responses to climate change. However, hydrological processes in...

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

Arsenic Oxidation by Flavin-Derived Reactive Species under Oxic and Anoxic Conditions

Kunfu Pi, Philippe Van Cappellen, Ekaterina Markelova & Peng Zhang
The objective of this research is to see how the redox and pH conditions impact the oxidation of arsenic (As) in the presence of reduced and oxidized riboflavin species. Batch experiments using simple dark-brown glass reactors were conducted under anoxic (glovebox filled with 97-98% nitrogen and 2-3% hydrogen gases) and oxic (purified air introduced to the reactors through tubes) conditions and a range of pre-designed solution pH from 5.2 to 9.0. Variables collected in this...

Model Data from 'Irreversibility of Marine Climate Change Impacts under Carbon Dioxide Removal'

Xinru Li & Kirsten Zickfeld
This dataset contains numerical simulations of the University of Victoria Earth System Climate Model version 2.9 (UVic ESCM v2.9) forced by a set of future emission scenarios. We use Representative Concentration Pathway (RCP2.6) and its extension to year 2300 as the reference scenario and design a set of cumulative emissions and temperature overshoot scenarios based on other RCPs. This can be used to investigate to what extent overshoot and subsequent recovery of a given cumulative...

The Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) climate index aims to describe the environmental conditions on the NL shelf and in the Northwest Atlantic as a whole. It consists of annual normalized anomalies of 10 subindices with equal contribution: Winter North Atlantic Oscillation, air temperature, sea ice, icebergs, sea surface temperature, vertically-averaged temperature and salinity at Station~27, cold intermediate layer (CIL) core temperature at Station~27, CIL area on 3 hydrographic sections and bottom temperature on the NL...

A DNA-based biosensor for aqueous Mercury(II)

Kunfu Pi, Juewen Liu & Philippe Van Cappellen
This project focuses on the evaluation of a DNA-based biosensor for aqueous mercury(II) under variable pH, temperature and competing ligand compositions. In particular, this study shows that the DNA-functionalized hydrogel sensor could be a better choice than the simple DNA solution for measuring mercury(II) concentrations in complex solutions and in natural waters. The data in this research were collected in the Ecohydrology Research Group laboratories at the University of Waterloo. Funding for this work was...

Unmanned aerial vehicle structure from motion and lidar data for sub-canopy snow depth mapping

Phillip Harder, John Pomeroy & Warren Helgason
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) have had recent widespread application to capture high resolution information on snow processes and the data herein was collected to address the sub-canopy snow depth challenge. Previous demonstrations of snow depth mapping with UAV Structure from Motion (SfM) and airborne-lidar have focused on non-vegetated surfaces or reported large errors in the presence of vegetation. In contrast, UAV-lidar systems have high-density point clouds, measure returns from a wide range of scan angles,...
