Current and Past Nitrogen Deposition in the Athabasca Oil Sands Region and its Effects on Nitrogen Cycling and Peat Bogs

The research was structured around four projects, each achieved by research in two geographic areas: a group of 10 bog sites in the Fort McMurray area, ranging from 26 to 112 km from the Syncrude plant north of Fort McMurray, and four bog sites distant from Fort McMurray where a 15N labeling N fertilization field experiment was conducted.
