Ecosystem Sites, Total Gaseous Mercury, Preliminary Data, Oil Sands Region Total gaseous mercury (TGM) data are currently collected by Environment and Climate Change Canada at two Wood Buffalo Environmental Association (WBEA) Air Monitoring Stations (AMS). Preliminary, hourly averaged TGM data from the oil sands region are available for: WBEA AMS 6 - Patricia McInnes, located in Fort McMurray, Alberta, and 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 TGM. 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 airtotal gaseous mercuryCAPMoNactive samplingoil sandstrace gasesFort McKayFort McMurrayOil sandsAir quality The Canadian Air and Precipitation Monitoring Network (CAPMoN) Network Methods (English)HTML http://www.ec.gc.ca/rs-mn/default.asp?lang=En&n=5C042781-1 The Canadian Air and Precipitation Monitoring Network (CAPMoN) Network Methods (French)HTML http://www.ec.gc.ca/rs-mn/default.asp?lang=Fr&n=5C042781-1 Scientific Publication - A Survey of Mercury in Air and Precipitation across Canada: Patterns and TrendsHTML http://www.mdpi.com/2073-4433/5/3/635 Scientific Publication - Total Gaseous Mercury Concentration Measurements at Fort McMurray, Alberta, CanadaHTML http://www.mdpi.com/2073-4433/4/4/472 View ECCC Data Mart (English)HTML http://data.ec.gc.ca/data/air/monitor/ambient-air-quality-oil-sands-region/ecosystem-sites-total-gaseous-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-total-gaseous-mercury-preliminary-data-oil-sands-region?lang=fr
