Bioretention cells under cold climate conditions: Effects of freezing and thawing on water infiltration, soil structure, and nutrient removal
Bioretention cells are a popular control strategy for stormwater volume and quality, but their efficiency for water infiltration and nutrient removal under cold climate conditions has been poorly studied. In this work, ...
Characterizing the transport of hydrocarbon contaminants in peat soils and peatlands
(University of Waterloo, 2018-09-04)
Widespread transportation corridors crossing Canadian peatlands make these landscapes vulnerable to hydrocarbon spills. After a spill happens, free hydrocarbon spreads in the peat layer forming a free-phase plume. Water ...
Characterizing the immiscible transport properties of diesel and water in peat soil
Extensive pipeline and railway corridors crossing Canadian peatlands make them vulnerable to hydrocarbon spills, potentially impairing ecosystem health, so it is important to be able to forecast hydrocarbon fate and transport ...
