Naphthenic acids are the most significant environmental contaminants resulting from petroleum extraction from oil sands deposits. In this study, a mixture of naphthenic acids isolated from Athabasca oil sands (AOS) tailings pond water was used in acute and subchronic toxicity tests with rodents, in order to assess potential risks posed to terrestrial(More)
– The design and performance of NETROL, a distributed internet-based control architecture for robotic teleoperation, is presented. Experimental data is provided to quantify the magnitude and variation of time delay as well as the level of packet loss introduced by this control architecture for robotic control over a range of distances and networking(More)
Rapid and reliable toxicity assessment of oil sands process-affected waters (OSPW) is needed to support oil sands reclamation projects. Conventional toxicity tests using whole animals are relatively slow, costly, and often subjective, while at the same time requiring the sacrifice of test organisms as is the case with lethal dosage/concentration assays.
