Raw data and videos of historical and projected hydrodynamics and water quality in Lake Diefenbaker reservoir under climate change scenarios using the 2D CE-QUAL-W2 model

Amir Sadeghian, Luis Morales-Marin & Karl-Erich Lindenschmidt
Lake Diefenbaker (LD) is a large, multi-purpose, mesotrophic reservoir in the Canadian Prairies. The 2D hydrodynamics and water quality model, CE-QUAL-W2, is implemented to explore how historical (2001-2010) and predicted future (2041-2050 and 2081-2090) hydrological and meteorological conditions may impact the in-reservoir nutrient and water chemistry characteristics of lake Diefenbaker. The LD model is discretized in 87 horizontal segments starting at Saskatchewan highway 4 at the upstream extending to the Gardiner Dam and the Qu’Appelle...

Economic analysis of swine injection technology

Catherine Trask
This dataset includes cost data gathered via interviews with swine producers in the Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Intensification of modern swine production has led to many new technologies, including needleless injectors. Although needleless injectors may increase productivity (by reducing injection time) and reduce needlestick injuries, the effect on risk for musculoskeletal disorders is not clear. This project will compare conventional needles with needleless injectors in terms of cost, productivity, injury rates, biomechanical exposures,...

Dhiraj Pradhananga, John Pomeroy, Caroline Aubry-Wake, D. Scott Munro, Joseph Shea, Michael N. Demuth, Nammy Hang Kirat, Brian Menounos & Kriti Mukherjee
Hydrological, meteorological, glaciological, and geospatial data of the Peyto Glacier Research Basin (PGRB) in the Canadian Rockies are presented. Peyto Glacier has been of great interest to glaciological and hydrological research since the 1960s for the study of mass and water balance during the International Hydrological Decade (IHD, 1965-1974). Intensive studies of the glacier and observations of the glacier mass balance continued after the IHD, when the initial seasonal meteorological stations were discontinued, then restarted...

The Ensemble Meteorological Dataset for North America (EMDNA) contains daily precipitation, mean daily temperature, and daily temperature range at the 0.1-degree resolution from 1979 to 2018. Minimum and maximum temperature can be calculated from mean temperature and temperature range. EMDNA merges station observations and reanalysis model outputs to improve the quality of estimates. The dataset is expected to be useful for hydrological and meteorological applications in North America. Two types of datasets are provided by...

Responses of juvenile fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) gut microbiota to a chronic dietary exposure of benzo[a]pyrene

Abigail DeBofsky, Yuwei Xie, Jonathan Challis, Markus Brinkmann, Markus Hecker & John Giesy
These data are collected from juvenile fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) that were exposed to benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) as well as fish exposed to a solvent control for two weeks via the diet. The samples were sterilely collected from whole fathead minnow guts and stored at -80°C until DNA and RNA extraction. The guts were used for 16S rRNA sequencing to analyze the impact of BaP on gut microbial communities. Each fish was analyzed independently (samples were...

Differential sex responses of fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas) gut microbiota to a short-term environmentally-relevant aqueous exposure to benzo[a]pyrene

Abigail DeBofsky, Yuwei Xie, Chelsea Grimard, Markus Brinkmann, Markus Hecker & John Giesy
Vertebrate gut microbiota are responsible for regulating several beneficial functions, from development of an organism to maintaining energy homeostasis. However, little is known about the impact of chemical exposures on the structure and function of gut microbiota of fishes. To ascertain a link between contaminant exposure and microbial disruption, male and female fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) were aqueously exposed to low concentrations of benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) (concentrations ranged from 0.0226 g/L to 1.3 g/L) as well...

Data files for \"Tree Swallow selection for wetlands in agricultural landscapes predicted by central-place foraging theory\"

Andrew Elgin, Robert Clark & Christy A. Morrissey
Complete dataset for manuscript entitled "Tree Swallow selection for wetlands in agricultural landscapes predicted by central-place foraging theory". Our study examined Tree Swallow (Tachycineta bicolor) habitat and space use on sites with differing agricultural land use/land cover (cropland-dominated, grassland-dominated, and one “mixed” site with cropland and herbaceous cover). Miniature GPS tags were attached to swallows during the nestling provisioning period, and locational fixes were attempted every 10 minutes from 0500 to 2200 local time, over...
