Tributary Biomonitoring (Lower Athabasca River)
Benthic macroinvertebrates, comprising insects, crusteaceans, molluscs and worms, represent a group of organisms used widely in environmental monitoring programs as early warning indicators to assess the effects of change in water quality or physical habitat conditions on aquatic ecosystem health. An interpretive report (Culp et. al., 2018) was released in 2018 which included assessments of the benthic and supporting data from 2012-2015. An excerpt from the executive summary regarding the tributary benthic invertebrate results is provided below and the full report can be found online at https://open.alberta.ca/publications/9781460140314.

"Patching operating systems and applications is one of the Top 10 Security Actions in CSE’s Top 10 IT Security Actions to Protect Government of Canada Internet-Connected Networks and Information (ITSB-89 Version 3). Implementing the Top 10 security actions as a package would prevent the vast majority of intrusions to which CSE currently responds.
Applying patches to operating systems, applications and devices is a critical activity in ensuring the security of systems. This document provides guidance on assessing known vulnerabilities and patches in order to determine the risk posed to an organization, the relative priority for patch deployment, as well as guidelines on how to deploy patches."
The flood extent products are derived from satellite imagery with a system developed and operated by the Earth Sciences Sector (ESS) of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). This emergency mapping service is activated for large flood events in Canada. Products are generated and distributed in near real time as processed imagery becomes available. NRCan works closely with Public Safety Canada's National Headquarters in Ottawa, Regional offices, and Government Operations Centre (GOC) to define of user needs, technical feasibility and for the coordination of satellite acquisition planning.

A Notice of Compliance is a notification, issued pursuant to paragraph C.08.004(1)(a), indicating that a manufacturer has complied with sections C.08.002 or C.08.003 and C.08.005.1 of the Food and Drug Regulations. Notices of Compliance are issued to a manufacturer following the satisfactory review of a submission. The NOC extract files contain Health Canada authorization dates for all drugs dating back to 1994 that have received an NOC. There are four types of NOCs: Biological, Prescription, Nonprescription and Veterinary.
In 1997, Noranda acquired a 7.8 km seismic line in the vicinity of the Sturgeon Lake mining camp in Norwestern Ontario. Data processing was performed at the GSC and the dynamite data displayed high signal levels with strong reflectivity observed at depth.
The Combined Atmospheric Gases and Particles data sets were collected at regionally representative sites from ground-based monitoring networks in Canada and the USA. The data are from Canadian federal and provincial networks (past and present) and U.S. historical networks (these data are not available elsewhere) and studies from 1982 to the present.
The archive primarily contains measurement data collected by the Air Quality Research Division of Environment and Climate Change Canada and its external collaborators and contributors. Also included is an archive of historical U.S. and Canadian (federal and provincial) air and precipitation data back to the 1970’s.
