Kendra L.C. Munn & Suzana Dragićević
The buildingrooms and New_5 shapefiles were derived from the City’s open data building footprint shapefiles to represent the base units for 1211 hypothetical residential units spanning 10 high-rise buildings in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Supporting geospatial data and ancillary information were used to conduct spatial analyses in ArcGIS and CityEngine software to calculate the attribute values for each unit for eight evaluation criteria: the proximity to parks, schools, water, and Skytrain stations, and view,...

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...

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...

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.

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,...

Hydrometeorological observations at three boreal forest sites (aspen, jack pine, and black spruce) located in central Saskatchewan, Canada

Hafiz Faizan Ahmed, Warren Helgason, Alan G. Barr & T. Andrew Black
Long-term observations are presented here from two coniferous (jack pine and black spruce) and one deciduous (aspen) forest sites located in central Saskatchewan, Canada. These sites were initiated through the Boreal Ecosystem and Atmosphere Study (BOREAS) program during 1994-96 (http://boreas.gsfc.nasa.gov/) and were later operated under the Boreal Ecosystem Research and Monitoring Sites (BERMS) program. All three sites were equipped with rich instrumentation that include walk-up scaffold towers fitted with sensors to measure air temperature, humidity...

DNA and RNA zooplankton metabarcoding to assess the efficacy of different oil spill clean-up techniques in a boreal lake

Phillip Ankley, Yuwei Xie, Tyler Black, Abigail DeBofsky, McKenzie Perry, Michael Paterson, Mark Hanson, Scott Higgins, John Giesy & Vince Palace
Emerging tools, namely metabarcoding, has promise for high-throughput and benchmarkable biomonitoring of freshwater zooplankton communities. Additionally, regulators require further information to select best practices for remediating freshwater ecosystems after oil spills. DNA and RNA metabarcoding, or present and active zooplankton, respectively, was applied to compare with traditional morphological identification of freshwater zooplankton in experimental boreal shoreline enclosures. DNA and RNA metabarcoding was also applied in the context of assessing response of the zooplankton community exposed...

Impacts of the Husky oil spill on gut microbiota of native fish species to the North Saskatchewan River

Abigail DeBofsky, Yuwei Xie, Tim Jardine, Paul Jones & John Giesy
These data are collected from goldeye (Hiodon alosoides), walleye (Sander vitreus), northern pike (Esox lucius), and shorthead redhorse (Moxostoma macrolepidotum) from the North Saskatchewan River in 2017, following the Husky oil spill. The samples (gut contents) were sterilely collected from the guts of each fish and stored at -80C until DNA extraction. The guts were used for 16S rRNA sequencing to analyze differences in the microbiome among species as well as the impact of the...
