Data used for the analysis of dominant controls on evapotranspiration from the BERMS Old Jack Pine site, Saskatchewan

Mahtab Nazarbakhsh, Andrew Ireson & Alan G. Barr
Land surface schemes can be applied to simulate evapotranspiration. This dataset contains the driving meteorological data, and various diagnostic data, from one of the Boreal Ecosystem Research and Monitoring Sites in central Saskatchewan, known as the Old Jack Pine site. In Nazarbakhsh et al. (2019, Hydrological Processes, https://doi.org/10.1002/hyp.13674) we used these data to drive two Canadian land surface schemes (CLASS and CLASS–CTEM). We used half–hourly values of shortwave radiation, longwave radiation, precipitation, air temperature, specific...

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...

Multimodal data with wide-field GCaMP imaging and sub-cortical/cortical single unit recording (2015)

Dongsheng Xiao
This dataset includes raw wide-field GCaMP image sequences and time stamps of spike trains simultaneously recorded with GCaMP imaging and processed GCaMP images and spike trains: df/f0 with 0.1-10 band pass filter and spike train binned in one frame time. Most experiments were performed toward the end of the mouse light cycle. Mice were anesthetized with isoflurane (0.5–1.0%) or urethane during data collection. Images of the cortical surface were recorded through a pair of front-to-front...

Evaporation modelling gridded data and meteorological station data for a case study at a rolling prairie landscape at St. Denis National Wildlife Area, Saskatchewan, Canada

Robert Armstrong, John Pomeroy & Lawrence Martz
This data set contains gridded outputs and surface data collected for a case study conducted on August 5, 2007 at St. Denis National Wildlife Area in central Saskatchewan, Canada. The data is provided in reference to the paper published in Hydrol. Earth Syst. Sci., 23, 4891–4907, 2019, ‘Spatial variability of mean daily estimates of actual evaporation from remotely sensed imagery and surface reference data’ at https://doi.org/10.5194/hess-23-4891-2019

Oxidation of Fe(II) by Flavins under Anoxic Conditions

Peng Zhang, Philippe Van Cappellen & Kunfu Pi
This project aims to understand the redox reaction between Fe(II) and flavins. Our study demonstrated that aqueous Fe(II) can be oxidized by the oxidized form of riboflavin and flavin mononucleotide at pH 7–9. Both the rates and extents of oxidation increased with increasing concentration of oxidized flavins and increasing solution pH. Our data are from experiments, which mainly consist of the chemical variables, were collected in the Ecohydrology lab at the University of Waterloo using...

Medium-Resolution Surface Meteorological Forcing Data for Hydrological Modelling and Climate Change Impact Analysis over most of North America

Zilefac Elvis Asong, Mohamed Elshamy, Daniel Princz, Howard Wheater, John Pomeroy, Alain Pietroniro & Alex Cannon
This dataset provides an improved set of forcing data for large-scale hydrological modelling and climate change impacts assessment over a domain covering most of North America. The EU WATCH ERA-Interim reanalysis (WFDEI) has a long historical record (1979-2016) and global coverage. 30 years of WFDEI data (1979-2008) were used to bias-correct climate projections from 15 ensemble members of Canadian Centre for Climate Modelling and Analysis Canadian Regional Climate Model (CanRCM4) simulations between 1951–2100 under Representative...

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...

Canadian Prairie Watershed Classification

Jared Wolfe, Colin J. Whitfield, Kevin R. Shook & Chris Spence
Shapefile detailing classified prairie watersheds (n = 4175) according to physiographic characteristics. These characteristics were assembled from a variety of sources, including remote sensed data and government databases. Variables included climatic (annual precipitation, potential evapotranspiration), physical (slope, elevation), surficial geology, wetland (density, size distribution), and land cover/use data. Watersheds were classified using a hierarchical clustering on principal components analysis. As a result, seven distinct classes of watersheds were identified. The dataset defines two classifications schemes:...

Anthropogenic Phosphorus Mass Balance in Ontario Counties and Watersheds

Tamara Van Staden, Kim Van Meter, Daniel Saurette, Nandita Basu, Chris Parsons & Philippe Van Cappellen
Parameters from the Net Anthropogenic Phosphorus Inputs model (NAPI) estimated on a county scale: annual crop uptake of phosphorus, annual net input from livestock (i.e. manure), annual phosphorus from milkhouse runoff, annual phosphorus applied as fertilizer, annual phosphorus inputs from domestic detergent use, and annual human phosphorus consumption in kg. Values were compiled from the Agricultural Census and the Population Census from Statistics Canada for each census year which occurred every five years beginning in...

Meteorological observations and measurements collected during the Storms and Precipitation Across the continental Divide Experiment (SPADE), April – June 2019

Julie M. Thériault, Stephen J. Déry, John Pomeroy, Ronald E. Stewart, Hilary Smith, Hadleigh Thompson, André Bertoncini, Aurélie Desroches-Lapointe, Charlie Hébert-Pinard, Selina Mitchell, Jeremy Morris, Juris Almonte, Mathieu Lachapelle, Zen Mariani & Cécile Carton
Global Water Future’s Storms and Precipitation Across the continental Divide Experiment (SPADE) was initiated to enhance our knowledge of the contribution of different moisture flows on precipitation across the Canadian Rockies. SPADE installed instrumentation on both sides of the continental divide to gather automated and manual observations during an intensive field campaign from 24 April to 26 June 2019. Various meteorological instruments were deployed including a two Doppler LiDARs, three vertically pointing micro rain radars...
