Impacts of sulphur and nitrogen deposition in western Canada

Abstract

The expansion of transportation sectors (road vehicles and marine vessels), industry (e.g., oil and gas) and urban centres in western Canada has triggered a growth in research, monitoring and modelling activities investigating the impacts of sulphur and nitrogen deposition on aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. This special issue presents an overview of related research in British Columbia (Georgia Basin), Alberta (Athabasca Oil Sands Region), Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The research provides a valuable benchmark for future studies across the region and points the way forward for 'acid rain' policies in western Canada.
