In the last decade, remote sensing of the temporal variation of ground level and gravity has improved our understanding of groundwater dynamics and storage. Mass changes are measured by GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) satellites, whereas ground deformation is measured by processing synthetic aperture radar satellites data using the InSAR(More)
ABTRACT In the context of a lack of reliable data in assessing groundwater overexploitation, space borne sensors bring useful information. While space-borne SAR and gravimetric data are now used to study groundwater, their interoperability is still poorly studied. In this paper, we apply two cutting-edge techniques for the deficit assessment of one of(More)
The high levels of acid extractable organics (AEOs) containing naphthenic acids (NAs) found in oil sands process-affected waters (OSPW) are a growing concern in monitoring studies of aquatic ecosystems in the Athabasca oil sands region. The complexity of these compounds has substantially hindered their accurate analysis and quantification. Using a recently(More)
