A video produced by scientists at Environment Canada shows how far pollutants from industry in Alberta can travel - with some pollutants ending up hundreds of kilometres downwind from where they were emitted.


Edmonton (population: city 812.000, metropolitan area 1.160.000), capital of the province of Alberta, Canada.
Edmonton is situated in central Alberta at a historic crossroads of water, land, and air routes.

Its high latitude (53° north) and interior location produce winters that are long, cold, and relatively dry.
The average daily temperature range in January is -19° to -9° C (-2° to 16° F), and the average range in July is 11° to 24° C (52° to 75° F).
The average annual rain and snowfall is 460 mm (18 in). Precipitation mainly falls in summer, which produces excellent growing conditions for grain, oilseed, and pasture.

At 684 square km., Edmonton is also one of the largest cities by area in North America - larger in area than Chicago, Philadelphia and Detroit.
