Key Publications

Return to Search Page

This page is a guide to significant publications and websites that provide an overview of the environmental impacts, socio-economic effects and regulation of hydrocarbon exploration, development and transportation in northern Canada.

For background publications selected in 2009 for the proposed Beaufort Regional Environmental Assessment (BREA), see the Report Group menu on the Simple Search page of the Hydrocarbon Impacts (HI) database.

This page is a work in progress. Much more information remains to be added. If you know of significant publications or websites that are not yet listed here, please let us know.

Most of the links on this page take you to one or more citations and abstracts in the HI database. Paper versions of most of these publications are available from their publishers or from major Canadian libraries. As a last resort, publications whose citations have the code "ACU" in their Libraries field are available on interlibrary loan from the University of Calgary Library.

Environmental Impacts and Socio-Economic Effects

To be listed in this section publications should either contain important overviews of the environmental impacts and socio-economic effects of hydrocarbon development in the North, or be examples of "best practices" in northern hydrocarbon impact assessment and monitoring. The formal environmental impact statements for past proposals and projects are listed in a later section of this page. Publications are listed from oldest to newest.
