Syncrude’s Aurora Soil Capping Study – Root Evaluation

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • A root assessment at select locations across the Aurora Soil Capping Study site was completed in October 2018 to determine if rooting patterns and distribution could be used to explain observed variation in above-ground tree growth. The variation in above-ground tree growth included patterns of growth along treatment boundaries that were better than in the adjacent treatments, and individual trees growing noticeably better than other trees within the same treatment. It was expected that observations from the root assessment would either provide supporting evidence for above-ground observations at the Aurora Soil Capping Study or suggest hypotheses for unexpected observations that could then lead to further avenues of research.
