Found 10 records similar to Saskatoon's Monthly Precipitation Quantity and its Stable Oxygen and Hydrogen Isotope Data from 1990 to present

This dataset contains the stable nitrogen (δ15N), carbon (δ13C), oxygen (δ18O), and hydrogen (δ2H) isotope data from 1123 samples of underfur hair of adult polar bears (Ursus maritimus) sampled between 1992 to 2017 from subpopulation boundaries (zone) in the Canadian Arctic and sub-Arctic. Wide-ranging apex predators are among the most challenging of all fauna to conserve and manage. This is especially true of the polar bear, an iconic predator that is hunted in Canada and threatened by global climate change. We used combinations of stable isotopes (13C,15N,2H,18O) in polar bear hair to test the ability of stable isotopic profiles to ‘assign’ bears to (1) predefined managed subpopulations, (2) subpopulations defined by similarities in stable isotope values using quadratic discriminant analysis, and (3) spatially explicit, isotopically distinct clusters derived from interpolated (i.e.

Major ions data consist of the following key ions in precipitation: Cl-, NO3-, SO4=, NH4+, Na+, K+, Ca++, Mg++. The data sets typically also include the pH and depth of the precipitation sample. These data are collected by several provincial, national and bi-national networks. The wet-only precipitation collector samples precipitation only when it rains or snows.

As part of a water quality survey, stream samples were collected throughout the Big Creek, Lynn River, and Nanticoke Creek Watershed in Southern Ontario in 2008. The project was undertaken to examine stream water quality under base flow conditions and was done in support of Environment and Climate Change Canada’s ongoing work to assess the status of the waters of the Great Lakes Basin. Sample collection was done at roadside stream crossings using a stainless steel bucket. Field parameters (temperature, specific conductivity, dissolved oxygen, pH) were determined on site using a YSI 600QS Sonde.

The Duck Lake (Saskatchewan) Geolysimeter precipitation intercomparison data are from a co-located precipitation gauge and deep groundwater observation well. The data published here are event based intercomparisons, collected between 2010 and 2016, binned into rain and snow events. Snowfall data observed by the precipitation gauge have been adjusted for wind bias using the SPICE (Solid Precipitation InterComparison Experiment) transfer functions (Kochendorfer et al., 2017a) and included for intercomparison. The data is described by Smith et al.

The dataset contains the blended gauge and satellite estimates monthly mean precipitation rates unit: mm/day for Canada for the period from January 1979 to December 2007, at a half degree spatial resolution. Please refer to the paper below for the details of the blending algorithm and input gauge and satellite data.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a plate with three maps that show the mean annual number of days with measurable precipitation, the mean annual number of days with measurable snowfall, and the variability of annual precipitation. A day with sufficient measurable precipitation (a precipitation day) is considered as a day on which the recorded rainfall amounts to one one-hundredth of an inch (0.0254 cm) or more, or the snowfall measured is one-tenth of an inch (0.254 cm) or more. At any one location the annual precipitation may vary considerably from one year to the next. This variability of annual precipitation is expressed in terms of the coefficient of variation.

A simulation of projected changes in summer (June to August) precipitation from the period 1961 to 1990 to the period 2040 to 2060 for Canada is shown on this map. Projected precipitation changes would not be evenly distributed geographically. Summer patterns show regions with both increases and decreases in precipitation. Warmer surface temperature would speed up the hydrological cycle at least partially, resulting in faster evaporation and more precipitation.

Precipitation measurements in the Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) surface network are a necessary component for monitoring weather and climate and are required for flood and water resource forecasting, numerical weather prediction and many other applications that impact the health and safety of Canadians. Beginning in the late 1990s, the ECCC surface network began a transition from manual to automated precipitation measurements. Advantages to increased automation include enhanced capabilities for monitoring in remote locations and higher observation frequency at lower cost. However, transition to automated precipitation gauges has resulted in new challenges to data quality, accuracy, and homogenization.

Contained within the 5th Edition (1978 to 1995) of the National Atlas of Canada is a plate with seven maps. The first maps shows mean annual precipitation for Canada. Four additional maps shows mean annual precipitation for four separate months. The final two maps show mean growing season precipitation and mean number of days with measurable precipitation.
