Wetlands mainly occur low in the landscape and form areas of groundwater discharge. This aids in the accumulation and composition of peat, as water moves slowly in wetlands. Local topography and sediment characteristics, such as an underlying low-permeability clay layer, can lead to wetlands acting as areas of recharge to groundwater and discharge to surface drainage. Water levels vary in wetlands due to climate, seasonal factors, and large water losses to evapotranspiration

The datasets and maps are associated with a research study. Annual total (dry + wet) deposition fluxes of nitrogen (nitric acid, nitrate and ammonium) and sulfur (sulfur dioxide and sulfate) were determined at 15 Canadian Air and Precipitation Monitoring Network (CAPMoN) sites from 2000 to 2018. The sites are located in the west coast, prairies, central and southern Ontario and Quebec, eastern Quebec, and Atlantic Canada. Dry deposition fluxes were estimated using the ambient air concentrations and dry deposition velocities of nitrogen and sulfur compounds.

The regional pattern of greenhouse gas emissions for 1998 is shown on this map. The map also shows regional emissions per capita, in terms of tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per habitant in each region. Carbon dioxide emissions are a large part, at least 55%, of the total greenhouse gas emissions in each region. Methane's share of greenhouse gas emissions is higher in provinces where agriculture and fossil fuel production are important economic activities.

Urban living generates waste that is usually treated to some degree and then discharged into water bodies. Too much waste can pose a risk to aquatic ecosystems and species. Pollutants can remain environmentally damaging even after passing through conventional sewage treatment. Municipal wastewater, including residential, commercial and industrial wastewater, is the major source of contaminants in the marine environment.

The map shows 3172 hydrometric stations, 1491 active and 1681 inactive, located on rivers and lakes across the country. All the stations on the map are situated in a drainage area of 200 square kilometres or more. For 1200 stations shown on the map, surface water level measurements are recorded in real time, every three hours daily, when in operation, although the number of stations recording data varies throughout the year. Hydrometric stations record information on the water level, flow velocity and discharge.
