Proceedings of the first annual workshop of the Vegetation Technical Research Committee

  • The extraction of bitumen from the Athabasca Oil Sands can be considered successful only if workable and economically feasible methods of reclamation of the area following mining are developed. This is the purpose of the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program's Vegetation Technical Research Committee. The Workshop reported on in these proceedings gave the Project Leaders and their personnel an opportunity to: a) discuss their research approach and methodology, b) discuss their results to date, and c) discuss their future research plans. The papers presented here by no means cover the full extent of the Committee's research and result details to date, due to time considerations at the Workshop. They do, however, provide a good overview of the direction and reasons for direction of the research as it is being undertaken.
