The Athabasca River Basin iskm 2 in area and accounts for approximately 22% of Alberta's landmass (Gummer et al., ).It is fed by ten smaller watersheds or sub-watersheds that flow into the Athabasca River.

The majority of the watershed is within the province of Alberta ().The headwaters of the basin originate in the Rocky. In this regard, the contaminants program of the Northern River Basins Study (NRBS) in western Canada identified key contaminant sources to the Athabasca, Slave and Peace river basins (particularly related to pulp-mill developments) and assessed their environmental fate and distribution in water and sediments.

1. Introduction. The dissolved oxygen (DO) concentration in a river is an indicator of the overall health of the aquatic ecosystem. A low concentration may impact spawning success (Corsi et al., ).Incubation of burbot eggs at 6 mg/L delayed spawning up to 5 weeks (Giles et al., ).Mountain whitefish eggs incubated at mg/L took much longer to hatch.

1. Introduction. The Athabasca River is a physically and ecologically diverse river that flows from its glaciated headwaters in Jasper National Park's Rocky Mountains to its terminus in the Peace-Athabasca Delta - a Ramsar Wetland of International Significance located within Wood Buffalo National Park - and Lake Athabasca, in the northeast corner of Alberta.

There are many kinds of changes which have happened over the last years in the Mackenzie River Basin. Among the most significant changes that have occurred have been in northern Alberta in the Peace, Athabasca and Slave River areas.

This. Dissolved Oxygen. An adequate supply of dissolved oxygen gas is essential for the survival of aquatic organisms. A deficiency in this area is a sign of an unhealthy river. There are a variety of factors affecting levels of dissolved oxygen.

The atmosphere is a major source of dissolved oxygen in river water. This zone is populated by cold-water fish and most plants are algae and mosses attached to rocks.

The transition zone contains wider, lower-elevation streams, in which the water is warmer and flows down gentler slopes. They have less dissolved oxygen, and they support more producers (phytoplankton) and cool-water and warm-water fish species.

The coinciding drainage areas are 3, km2, 74, km2, andkm2 respectively. The Athabasca River Basin includes the McLeod, Pembina, Lesser Slave, and Clearwater Rivers and covers an area of approximatelykm2. The Peace River and Athabasca River merge to form the Peace Athabasca Delta.

In the Peace River Basin, north of the Athabasca River, Romolo et al. showed that the date of spring snowmelt in this river basin has occurred progressively earlier during – These trends are similar to the Athabasca River Basin where we showed that spring melt has been occurring 1 month earlier in the lower half of the basin in time.

Scientists have estimated that if dissolved oxygen levels in the entire Chesapeake Bay were less than 3 mg/l, there would be a loss to the economy of more than $ million. Dead zones and DO levels can vary widely from year to year, and habitat preferences of fish depend on more than just DO levels.

As recently as the mids, fish surveys on the Monongahela River found zero to four fish species (U.S.

Army Corps of Engineers, ). The Allegheny River and Monongahela River sites sampled in this study have been sampled comparably under various USGS programs since the early s, permitting a general comparison of water-quality.

From Lake Athabasca, water flows northward via the Slave River to Great Slave Lake, the Mackenzie River, and the Arctic Ocean. The Athabasca River is the longest river entirely within Alberta, and is the longest undammed river in the Canadian prairies.

The Athabasca River basin covers an area of approximatelykm 2, and includes. 21) One of the reasons that free oxygen in our atmosphere is important to the development and maintenance of life on Earth is because oxygen _____.

The outflow, the Lesser Slave River, is located at the lake's eastern end. It joins the Athabasca River about 75 km downstream of the outlet.

Lesser Slave Lake is a remnant of Lake Peace, a large proglacial lake that formed ab years ago as the Keewatin glacier retreated (Paetz and Zelt ; NW Hydraulic Consult. Ltd. Basin Basics Chapter 2 study guide by mbosman25 includes 20 questions covering vocabulary, terms and more.

To a significantly lesser degree, water quality in the Neuse River Basin is being affected by point source pollution from.

Concern over the threat of upstream developments in the Slave River basin, particularly the expansion of pulp mills and oil sands on the Athabasca River and damming of the Peace River, led to a multiyear monitoring program of the river in the early s, which provided much of the data summarized here.

Water and Sediment Quality in the Athabasca River Basin The ability of a river system to support life depends in part on the quality of the water and sediment found in the aquatic environment. Water and sediment quality depend on the characteristics of the river drainage basin and the processes—both natural and human—that occur there.

Tar-Pamlico River Basin The Tar-Pamlico River Basin is made up mostly of wetlands and forested areas, covering about 55 percent of its area, with about one-quarter made up of agriculture and a small portion urban developed areas.

This basin is rural when compared to the Neuse, which is similar in size and hydrology. A gateway to the [ ]. a concentration gradient). As the partial pressure of dissolved oxygen increases in the water (e.g., increasing temperature and salinity), it can more readily be extracted by an organism.

Cold-blooded organisms, however, have much higher metabolic rates and oxygen requirements at higher temperatures, which more than offsets the.Land and water are ecologically linked in a natural system called a catchment, drainage basin, or watershed. We are all connected through watersheds. A watershed is a web of life.

The life it supports is interconnected, meaning every creature and plant depends on other creatures and plants in the watershed for sustenance. If the whole watershed is like our bodies, then rivers.great impact on aquatic plants and fish.
