A review of pertinent literature was conducted to examine the effect of various organic materials when used as amendments to disturbed soil. The review was designed to be a reference document for government and industry staff involved in soil conservation and management of disturbed land. A...
A review of aquatic biomonitoring with particular reference to its possible use in the AOSERP study areaDownload
The general principles, approaches, and methods of aquatic biomonitoring are outlined from a review of the literature, with emphasis on those aspects directly applicable to the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program (AOSERP) study area. It is argued that an aquatic biomonitoring program...
An in-depth review of the literature related to deposition of gases and particulates by dry deposition and precipitation scavenging is reported. Recommendations are made on the hypotheses, algorithms or models considered to be most suitable for incorporation into a pollutant transport and...
Air pollution and its effects on various ecosystems has been a subject of increasing controversy. The European forest damage situation has heightened the public's awareness of the problem. Historically, the observed pollution damage was believed to be due mainly to sulphur dioxide pollution. ...
Transportation corridor study. Volume 2 Appendix: Extracts from existing literature compiled for use of Study GroupDownload
With the large number of persons involved in this particular study it was decided that considerable time (money) could be saved by gathering into one volume extracts of available literature. Reports, studies by other groups, articles, information and literature in regard to environmental impact,...
The enhancement or creation of wildlife habitat is receiving increased attention as a viable reclamation alternative for disturbed sites as a result of better reclamation technology, increased government and public awareness of the importance of wildlife, the realization of the adaptability of...
This report represents the findings of a literature review carried out on small mammal damage to revegetation areas and on small mammal control procedures. The information gathered in this review was used to help design a project aimed at reducing small mammal damage to reclamation research...
Catalogue of Technologies for Reducing the Environmental Impact of Fine Tailings from Oil Sands ProcessingDownload
A catalogue containing 22 technologies for reducing the environmental impact of fine tailings derived from oil sand processing has been assembled. The simple format which was developed as part of this study consisted of a spreadsheet outline of the technologies and a process summary for each...
The Alberta Forest Service has questioned the use of Caragana arborescens Lam. (common names: caragana, Siberian peatree and Siberian peashrub; the common name caragana will be used throughout this report) as a high-portion species for afforestation of reclaimed areas associated with oil sands...
The ecology (distribution, demography, habitat preferences and food habits) of five of the species of small mammals common to the Alberta Oil Sands are described – the species considered are Clethrionomys gapperi, Microtus pennsylvanicus, Peromyscus maniculatus, Tamiasciurus hudsonicus and Lepus...
