Objective: To improve the accessibility of publications that were wholly or partially funded by the Northern Contaminants Program (NCP). Progress: As of 26 Nov. 2015, 3298 publications resulting from research and communication funded by the NCP, have been added to the NCP Publications Database. This includes 1150 papers in the Synopsis of Research volumes, 877 journal papers, and 1271 other publications. Publications available on the Web are hyperlinked: 1192 records have URLs that take you directly to the PDF files of the publications. 730 of the 877 journal papers have DOIs (digital object identifiers), which are hyperlinked. Clicking on the DOI will take you to the publisher's website and, if your organization has a subscription, to a PDF file of the paper. ... The Northern Contaminants Program requests all NCP Researchers obtain an Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID). ORCIDs provide a way to uniquely identify researchers' records in Canadian polar databases and will allow easy cross-linking of records between the NCP's website and the NCP Publications Database. To obtain your own ORCID identifier, please register at http://orcid.org and send your 16 digit identifier to astis@ucalgary.ca. We are making NCP records available in other widely-used polar databases, including the main Arctic Science and Technology Information System (ASTIS) and a number of ASTIS subset databases. (Au)

From 1991 to 1997, the Government of Canada provided $100 million under the Arctic Environmental Strategy to increase the knowledge of the country's northern environment in order to better protect it. Of this, $25 million was earmarked for water-related work, of which $15 million was provided for work in the Northwest Territories. During those years, a considerable amount of work was done on many aspects of the N.W.T. water cycle. While studies of specific groups of aquatic constituents at specific sites were completed, a more general approach was also taken to expand the overall knowledge of the hydrosphere. Evaporation and snow data were collected along with the more common water flow data. Fish and sediments were analysed in addition to water. Organic contaminants were tested for, as well as the traditional inorganic parameters. Academic papers, public presentations and public-level reports were prepared. A high school teacher's package was completed. Intensive studies were done in some areas and one-time extensive area sampling in others. ... This research resulted in the production of 215 publications. The immediate purpose of this bibliography, prepared by the Arctic Science and Technology Information System (ASTIS), was to organize these publications for the Water Resources Division. The bibliography has met a number of other goals in the process. First, it provides as complete a list as currently possible of the publications supported directly and indirectly by the Northwest Territories Action on Water Component of the Arctic Environmental Strategy. Second, it has ensured that most publications are available to the public through the University of Calgary Library. And finally, because the bibliography has been created as a subset of the ASTIS database, it promotes northern water research by giving all researchers better access to information about the work carried out. As part of the ASTIS database, all bibliography records have been included in the ASTIS Current Awareness Bulletin, the annual ASTIS Bibliography CD-ROM, an international polar CD-ROM and two commercial Web databases. (Please see the ASTIS section of the AINA Web site at http://www.ucalgary.ca/aina/ for more information.) Information about the water resources of northern Canada is limited and fragmentary at best. By providing a list of the Arctic Environmental Strategy publications, this bibliography will contibute to the first step in improving this condition: collecting, preserving and making available some of the information that does exist.

... In addition to improving the ASTIS database's coverage of AINA publications, a major objective of this work has been to publish, during the Institute's 50th anniversary year, this bibliography of AINA publications. Because there has not been time to find and create citations for all relevant publications, and because 2535 citations is too many to include in a printed bibliography of reasonable size, this bibliography is not comprehensive. It contains only selected categories of AINA publications, ... totaling 678 citations. ... [This bibliography contains citations to 34 serials published or co-published by AINA, eight of which are still being published, 324 monographs published or co-published by AINA, 78 publications authored by AINA staff and researchers but published by other organizations, 23 publications for which AINA has provided financial or other support, and 219 northern theses produced at the University of Calgary up to Fall Convocation 1994.] (Au)

... This is a bibliography of materials on the effects of hard rock mining on the aquatic environment of northern Canada. Hard rock mining in this context means the mining of metal-bearing ores and does not include placer mining, coal mining or the mining of gravel and sand. The aquatic environment means both fresh-water and marine ecosystems. Environmental impacts of mining on terrestrial ecosystems are not included unless they result in inputs to aquatic ecosystems. Northern Canada is defined as the Northwest Territories and Yukon. Some publications about the effects of hard rock mining on aquatic environments in the polar regions in general have also been included. Works about the aquatic impacts of mines in the Canadian provinces have not been included. Most types of printed information are included, such as journal articles, papers from conferences and workshops, theses, and reports produced by government agencies, mining companies and consultants. A few of the publications in the bibliography are more general in scope than the bibliography itself. Such publications have been included because they contain sections that have significant information on the aquatic impacts of mining. (Au)

Indigenous knowledge in northern Canada : an annotated bibliography : draft of April 1994   /   Arctic Science and Technology Information System   Howard, L. [Editor]   Goodwin, R. [Editor]   Howard, L. [Editor]   Canadian Polar Commission [Sponsor]
Calgary, Alta. : ASTIS, 1994.

This draft version of the indigenous knowledge bibliography, containing 609 citations, has been prepared for distribution to the Canadian Polar Commission's Canadian Polar Information System (CPIS) Committee and to other interested people and organizations. The scope of this draft is the same as that of the November 1993 and March 1994 drafts, except that the 36 research projects included in the two previous drafts have been deleted. It is our opinion, and that of the Indigenous Knowledge Bibliography Advisory Committee, that research projects cannot be covered adequately with the available resources and should therefore be excluded in favour of more complete coverage of bibliographic information. This draft is not comprehensive. We have citations for between 300 and 400 additional publications that appear from their titles to possibly be relevant to this bibliography, and we are working to obtain and examine them. This pool of unexamined citations does not adequately cover the relevant French language literature, and probably does not include all relevant publications from indigenous organizations. (Au)

... One of the objectives of the Northern Granular Resources Program within the Land Management Division of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada is to improve the dissemination of information about sources and usage of granular resources in northern Canada. To help meet that objective the Land Management Division has commissioned this bibliography from the Arctic Science and Technology Information System (ASTIS). ... In addition to this printed version of the bibliography, a microcomputer version on diskette is available from the Land Management Division. The diskette version includes powerful retrieval software that can search citations and abstracts for any word or combination of words, and can be freely copied and redistributed by users. ... Although it was not possible with the available financial resources to make this bibliography totally comprehensive, it is by far the most complete listing yet prepared of publications concerning granular resources in Yukon and the Northwest Territories. ... This bibliography covers all aspects of granular resources, defined as gravel, sand and crushed rock for use in construction. Publications about the availability of granular resources are covered, including descriptions of specific sources, inventories of granular resources and the management of this resource. Methods of extracting and transporting granular resources are also covered, including the environmental and socio-economic impacts of such work and methods of mitigating these impacts. Future requirements for granular resources in all types of construction are covered, including conflicting demands for granular resources. Geological or geotechnical surveys are included if they contain information on possible sources of granular resources. Some publications in the bibliography cover many subjects in addition to granular resources, but have been included because they do contain significant granular resources information. ... (Au)

This bibliography contains works about icebergs off the east coast of Canada and the west coast of Greenland. The geographic area covered is all waters from Baffin Bay south to the Grand Banks and out into the North Atlantic. Because the techniques used to study and alter iceberg behaviour throughout the Polar Regions are applicable to eastern Canadian waters, relevant works on these subjects from other areas have been included. The bibliography does not include works on the properties of glacier ice in general, nor any aspects of glaciers other than iceberg calving. Works that contain a significant amount of information on icebergs are included even if the scope of the work is quite broad and icebergs are a relatively small part of it. For this reason some general works on sea ice which also contain information on pack ice, ice floes, etc. are included. Works on ice scouring by icebergs in eastern Canadian waters are included .... The bibliography contains some general works which have global application in the areas of iceberg towing, remote sensing of icebergs, iceberg surveying and measuring techniques, and technological developments used to combat the problem of iceberg scouring. ... This bibliography contains 1135 citations. ... (Au)

This bibliography is the first in a series of bibliographies to be prepared by the ESRF/ASTIS Project on the priority subjects of the Environmental Studies Revolving Funds. ... Ice scour is defined as the disturbance of the bottom sediments of a water-body by floating ice. Ice scour therefore does not include the effects of non-floating ice such as glaciers, grounded ice shelves, ice rises, or ice ride-up. ... This bibliography only includes works on ice scour itself, and not on related subjects such as the properties and distribution of sea ice and icebergs, characteristics of bottom sediments, terramechanics, or current scour. The bibliography includes a small number of works on ice scour in the intertidal zone and the biological effects of ice scour. Works that describe iceberg or sea ice groundings are included even if the scour marks themselves are not investigated or mentioned. Works that contain a significant amount of information on ice scour are included even if the scope of the work is quite broad and ice scour is a relatively small part of it. Proprietary works, such as wellsite surveys, are not included. No geographic restrictions were made in selecting works for the bibliography, although the fact that mostly English-language literature was examined means that information from Scandinavia and the Soviet Union is probably under-represented. ... This bibliography contains 379 citations. ... The citations in this bibliography have been grouped in a series of categories as shown in the Table of Contents. Those works that describe ice scour conditions in specific locations have been grouped geographically. ... Within each category citations are sorted by first author. Citations with no author appear at the beginning of the category. An author's works are sorted by title. The bibliography contains five indexes which refer back to the main section of the bibliography by citation number. ... (Au)
