Syncrude Canada Ltd. and Suncor Inc. operate oil sands processing facilities in the Fort McMurray area that emit acidic emissions including sulphur, nitrous oxide and heavy metals. A study of the vegetation stress was conducted in a study area within the vicinity of the Syncrude Canada Ltd. and Suncor Inc. oil sands leases in order to document conditions in 2001. This is the fifth assessment of vegetation stress in the area since 1978. The study consisted of the interpretation of false colour infra-red (FCIR) air photographs with a nominal scale of 1:10 000, a field inventory to ground-truth the interpretation and final mapping of the extent of vegetation stress. The air photographs were obtained in early August and field inventories were conducted in late August of 2001.
