Suitability of the Alberta Subsurface for Carbon Dioxide Sequestration in Geological Media

Sequestration of anthropogenic CO2 in geological media is a potential solution to the release into the atmosphere of CO2, a greenhouse gas. Basically, there are five ways of sequestering CO2 in geological media: 1) through enhanced oil recovery ... Show Abstract

Hydrogeology of the Clear Hills-Chinchaga River area, Alberta

The 20-year safe yield for about four-fifths of the area is 0.1 to 0.4 l/sec (1 to 5 igpm). Only in small isolated alluvial areas along the Peace River is the potential yield greater than 8 l/sec (100 igpm). A 20-year safe yield of even 0.1 l/sec ... Show Abstract

Hydrogeology of the Pelican-Algar Lake Area, Alberta

Maps and profiles were constructed from existing data and from data collected in a field survey. The 20-year safe yields are mostly over 0.4 l/sec (5 igpm). Most bedrock aquifers, however, yield saline water unsuitable for human ... Show Abstract
