Abstract
Reduced surface evaporation rates are marketed as a competitive advantage by water-enhancer manufacturers. In this report, a new test method is developed and applied to quantify the evaporation rates of various commercially available water-enhancer products in a controlled environment. These quantified evaporation rates were then compared to the evaporation rate of water which served as the benchmark.

Abstract
FPInnovations’ three-generation floor vibration-controlled design methods in NBCC and CSA O86 ensure market acceptance by consumers. Since 1990, there have been very few consumer complaints. This reinforces the use of wood as a quality building material and contributes to expanding market shares of wood construction in Canada.

Abstract
Through the Forestry 4.0 program, FPInnovations is investigating and testing telecommunication technologies for the forestry industry, this includes the application of TV White Space (TVWS) technology. TVWS radios operate in the frequency spectrum between 450 to 698 MHz and the majority of this spectrum is unlicensed and not acquired through federal government auctions. A short-term field trial was conducted in Central Québec forest operations in December 2020. Cost-effective connectivity will bridge the gap between the forest and the rest of the supply chain. Operational efficiency, flexibility and worker safety will be improved by enabling instant communication with currently isolated logging operations. This report summarizes the findings and results obtained in this first operational trial aimed at quantifying the scope of mobile connectivity through this new technology.

Abstract
Par l’initiative Foresterie 4.0, FPInnovations trouve et met à l’essai des technologies de télécommunication pour l’industrie forestière tel que la technologie TV White Space (TVWS). Les radios TVWS opèrent dans le spectre de fréquence de 450 à 698 MHz et la majorité de ce spectre est non-licencié et pas acquis par l’entremise des enchères du gouvernement fédéral. Un essai sur le terrain à court terme a été réalisé dans une exploitation forestière du centre du Québec en décembre 2020. Une connectivité rentable comblera la division entre la forêt et le reste de la chaîne d'approvisionnement. L'efficacité opérationnelle, la flexibilité et la sécurité des travailleurs seront améliorées en permettant une communication instantanée avec les opérations d'exploitation forestière actuellement isolées. Ce rapport résume les constats et résultats obtenus lors de ce premier essai opérationnel visant à quantifier la portée d’une connectivité mobile grâce à cette nouvelle technologie.

Abstract
Alberta Agriculture and Forestry (AAF) asked FPInnovations to conduct a field trial of two heavy helicopters that had recently been installed with on-board injection and mixing systems. The study focussed on determining the accuracy and reproducibility of these systems to produce effectively mixed water-enhancers for aerial delivery during wildfire suppression operations. These field trials were conducted north of Slave Lake, Alta. in June 2020. This report discusses the background, methodology, and outcomes of this equipment validation test.

Abstract
Developing and implementing adaptation practices that reduce the negative impacts and the vulnerability of resource road infrastructure to climate change needs to be a priority for resource road managers. The management of water across the forested landscape is expected to be a greater challenge in response to predicted climate changes in many regions of Canada. These changes in landscape water movement and seasonal timing could challenge existing resource road drainage infrastructure. This is the third Info Note in a series of five focused on the key issues of creating climate resilient resource roads.

Abstract
Developing and implementing adaptation practices that reduce the negative impacts and the vulnerability of resource road infrastructure to climate change needs to be a priority for resource road managers. In many regions of Canada, climate change is expected to bring changes in precipitation patterns. These changes will require a specific analysis of the hydraulic capacity of water crossing structures, as well as their projected needs to mitigate the risks to these structures. This is the fourth Info Note in a series of five focused on the key issues of creating climate resilient resource roads.

Abstract
Water management for winter roads needs to be carefully considered and planned in order to achieve a high level of environmental performance. Where water from a road surface or ditch needs to be managed, planning ahead can help achieve a high level of environmental performance with respect to protecting streams from sedimentation. Winter roads function well when frozen, yet are highly erodible during non-frozen periods. This paper presents aspects of planning and construction regarding water management for winter roads and focuses on a trial construction of a cross-ditch beginning with installation of a log bundle during road construction and ending with its removal during road deactivation.

Abstract
La gestion de l’eau pour les routes hivernales doit faire l’objet d’une attention et d’une planification particulières, afin d’obtenir un rendement environnemental élevé. Lorsqu’il est nécessaire de gérer l’eau sur la surface d’une route ou dans un fossé, la planification peut contribuer à l’atteinte d’un rendement environnemental élevé relativement à la protection des cours d’eau contre la sédimentation. Les routes hivernales fonctionnent bien lorsqu’elles sont gelées, mais deviennent très érodables en dehors des périodes de gel. Ce document présente les aspects liés à la planification et à la construction des routes hivernales relativement à la gestion de l’eau et met l’accent sur la construction d’un fossé transversal commençant par l’installation d’un paquet de billes pendant la construction de la route et se terminant avec son retrait à la désactivation de la route.
