Some chemical and physical properties of soil materials associated with the reclamation of mined tar sands areasDownload
This document consists of two tables providing chemical and physical properties of soil, peat, overburden, spent sand and lean tar sand from Syncrude and Suncor.
Oil sand overburden characterization within the mine area of Syncrude Lease No. 17 for reclamation of spent oil sandDownload
For the establishment and growth of plants, spent oil sand lacks Ca, K, NO3-N, available P, Zn, CEC and available water storage capacity. Cu, Mn and possibly SO4-S are marginally adequate in spent sand. Oil sand overburden materials within the mine area of Syncrude Lease No. 17 were sampled and...
In March 1976, the first in a series of intensive field studies was carried out in the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program study area in northeastern Alberta to examine the fine structure of the atmosphere and dispersion characteristics under winter conditions. The study comprised...
Soils of the AOSERP study area are being mapped using the ecological or biophysical approach to land classification. The basic land unit being mapped is the land system which is an area of land through which there is a recurring pattern of landforms, soils, vegetation chronosequences, and water...
Differences in the composition of soils under open and canopy conditions at two sites close-in to the great Canadian oil sands operation, Fort McMurray, AlbertaDownload
Soils sampled at Sites 1 and 2, 2.3 and 5.3 km south of the Great Canadian Oil Sands (GCOS) plant, Fort McMurray, respectively were found to differ statistically with reference to several macronutrients. Soils under cover of a canopy and those in open areas differed considerably with respect to...
Selected chemical and physical properties of the tailings pond were examined in 1980. The distributions of specific variables with depth and season within the tailings pond were determined (temperature, pH, conductivity, suspended particulate matter, total solids, bitumen, major anions, major...
Snow samples were collected in the Athabasca Oil Sands region of northeastern Alberta in mid-January and late February 1981. The snow depth was measured and snow cores were taken at .60 sites around the oil sands plants. Snow sample collectors were set out at six of the sites in mid-January and...
Soils of permanent sample plots were investigated to provide baseline data for research related to monitoring of terrestrial ecosystems. More specifically, the objective of this project was to provide information on the kinds, characteristics, and distribution of soils in 16 permanent sample...
In the summers of 1975, 1976, and 1977, several field investigations were carried out to determine the amounts of sulphur deposited in rain, in rain washing off trees, and by direct absorption of SO2 by soil. The impact of this sulphur deposition on soils in the AOSERP study area was also...
The chemical characteristics of snow in the Oil Sands area of northeastern Alberta have been monitored periodically since 1976. The accumulation of pollutants in the snowpack can be an effective indicator of total winter deposition as the snowpack preserves a continuous record of materials...
