Ecosystem Sites, Speciated Mercury, Preliminary Data, Oil Sands Region Measurements of gaseous elemental mercury (GEM), gaseous oxidized mercury (GOM) and particulate bound mercury on PM2.5 (referred to as PBM) are currently collected by Environment and Climate Change Canada at a Wood Buffalo Environmental Association (WBEA) Air Monitoring Station (AMS). Preliminary, three-hour averaged speciated mercury data from the oil sands region are available for WBEA AMS 13 – Fort McKay South, located near Fort McKay, Alberta. There are no Environment and Climate Change Canada or Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) air quality guidelines, nor Alberta Ambient Air Quality Objectives for speciated Hg measurements. The monitoring follows the established Canadian Air and Precipitation Monitoring Network (CAPMoN) standard operating procedures. These data are preliminary and of unspecified quality. They are subject to significant change, can occasionally include maintenance data, and should not be used in published documents. Please do not use or distribute these files without the associated metadata. It is recommended that people wishing to use these data first consult with the Principal Investigator to better understand potential limitations. 2019-07-21 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentAmbient airspeciated atmospheric mercuryparticle compositionparticulate matterPM compositionCAPMoNactive samplingoil sandsfine particulate mattercoarse particulate matterPM2.5PM10trace gasesgaseous elemental mercuryparticulate bound mercurygaseous oxidized mercuryFort McKayOil sandsAir quality Scientific Publication - A Survey of Mercury in Air and Precipitation across Canada: Patterns and TrendsHTML http://www.mdpi.com/2073-4433/5/3/635 View ECCC Data Mart (English)HTML http://data.ec.gc.ca/data/air/monitor/ambient-air-quality-oil-sands-region/ecosystem-sites-speciated-mercury-preliminary-data-oil-sands-region View ECCC Data Mart (French)HTML http://data.ec.gc.ca/data/air/monitor/ambient-air-quality-oil-sands-region/ecosystem-sites-speciated-mercury-preliminary-data-oil-sands-region?lang=fr
