Snowpack Study: Turkey Lakes Watershed Study

Snowpack Study: Turkey Lakes Watershed Study The snowpack has been sampled during both the accumulation and ablation stages at as many as 13 sites within the Turkey Lakes Watershed, Algoma, central Ontario, Canada since 1980, although more quantitative surveys began in 1989. Snow depth and a physical description of snowpack have been recorded at each station. Snow density, water equivalent and chemistry (major ions, pH and nutrients) have been determined. Since 2012, chemistry has only been completed on up to three sites although snow density and water equivalent have been measured at the others. Supplemental Information The Climate Change and Air Pollution (CCAP) program was established in 2016 to identify the severity and extent of adverse impacts of current and future air emissions on aquatic ecosystems to support regulatory actions and policy development. The program includes a number of components, including identifying, monitoring and defining air quality and greenhouse gas (GHG) concerns; improving our understanding of the short- and long-term effects of atmospheric pollutants on the environment; developing a plan to combat climate change; and monitoring and reducing both domestic and transboundary emissions of GHGs. The program is also responsible for identifying and studying emerging issues including multipollutant impacts, major urban sources, and effects of increasing heat on air pollutant formation, among others. On-going cooperation and support with the Provinces and Territories, international governments and organizations and academia are vital to deliver these priorities to Canadians. 2021-07-29 Environment and Climate Change Canada open-ouvert@tbs-sct.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentTurkey Lakes Watershed Studysnowsnowcoresmajor ionsnutrientsmetalsacid rainemissionslong term monitoringwatershedwater qualitylong range transport of air pollutantsCCAPclimate change and air pollution TLW SN01 SnowpackChemistry 1980-Current EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN01_SnowpackChemistry_1980-Current_EN-FR.csv TLW SN02 SnowpackChemistry 1980-2015 EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN02_SnowpackChemistry_1980-2015_EN-FR.csv TLW SN03 SnowpackChemistry 1980-Current EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN03_SnowpackChemistry_1980-Current_EN-FR.csv TLW SN04 SnowpackChemistry 1980-Current EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN04_SnowpackChemistry_1980-Current_EN-FR.csv TLW SN05 SnowpackChemistry 1980-Current EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN05_SnowpackChemistry_1980-Current_EN-FR.csv TLW SN06 SnowpackChemistry 1980-Current EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN06_SnowpackChemistry_1980-Current_EN-FR.csv TLW SN07 SnowpackChemistry 1980-Current EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN07_SnowpackChemistry_1980-Current_EN-FR.csv TLW SN08 SnowpackChemistry 1980-Current EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN08_SnowpackChemistry_1980-Current_EN-FR.csv TLW SN09 SnowpackChemistry 1980-2015 EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN09_SnowpackChemistry_1980-2015_EN-FR.csv TLW SN10 SnowpackChemistry 1980-Current EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN10_SnowpackChemistry_1980-Current_EN-FR.csv TLW SN11 SnowpackChemistry 1980-Current EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN11_SnowpackChemistry_1980-Current_EN-FR.csv TLW SN12 SnowpackChemistry 1989-Current EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN12_SnowpackChemistry_1989-Current_EN-FR.csv TLW SN13 SnowpackChemistry 1989-Current EN-FR.csvCSV https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/TLW_SN13_SnowpackChemistry_1989-Current_EN-FR.csv View ECCC Data Mart (English)HTML https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/ View ECCC Data Mart (French)HTML https://data-donnees.ec.gc.ca/data/substances/monitor/the-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/snowpack-study-turkey-lakes-watershed-study/?lang=fr
