Naturalization is a new and promising ecological approach to vegetation management for urban environments. Although there have been years of research focused on areas such as land reclamation, ecological restoration and plant establishment there is a lack of knowledge on how to reintegrate the...
Companies installing pipelines seek economical, practical and environmentally responsible methods of soil handling during pipeline construction to ensure successful soil reclamation. The objectives of the Twelve Mile Coulee Soil Research Project are to evaluate the impact of pipeline...
The influence of the viable but non-culturable (VBNC) state on specific phenotypic traits of Escherichia coli O157:H7 as well as its transport behaviour in porous media was examined in this study. E.coli O157:H7 is a human pathogen capable of entering a VBNC state following exposure to sublethal...
The objective of this literature review was to evaluate the available information on the effects of stripping versus not stripping topsoil during pipeline construction in potentially arable Luvisolic soils in forested areas. A profile description representative of an undisturbed Luvisol under...
Topsoil Handling During Pipeline Construction in Potentially Arable Forested Luvisols of Northwest AlbertaDownload
The objective of this study was to evaluate several pipeline topsoil stripping depths to determine whether they result in land capability equivalent to that of adjacent forested lands broken for cultivation. Topsoil stripping depths were 0 cm, 15 cm and 30 cm. Soils chosen for the study were...
The effects of subsoil ripping on soil physical properties and soil water dynamics on reconstructed soils at Genesee Prairie Mine, AlbertaDownload
Surface mining activities have significantly depleted natural tree cover, especially trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides), in the Boreal Forest and Aspen Parkland Natural Regions of Alberta. The natural soil profile is usually destroyed during these mining activities and soil and landscape...
Soil microbial communities in boreal forests are structured by complex interactions among many factors operating simultaneously on large and small spatial scales. Of particular note in the boreal mixedwood, the microbial communities under trembling aspen and white spruce forest floors are...
For some geotechnical design projects where soils are exposed to vibration, it becomes necessary to evaluate the strength and deformation characteristics of the soil under existing and/or anticipated vibrations. This thesis presents a summary of an experimental program performed to investigate...
In 1981, a study was initiated near Princess, Alberta to evaluate single-lift pipeline construction impacts on Solonetzic mixed prairie rangeland. In August 1991, a further evaluation of the study sites was conducted to determine the longevity of the changes that took place on the 1981...
