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...
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 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...
The objective of this literature review is to briefly discuss and summarize the available vegetation literature pertinent to the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program (AOSERP) study area. It is intended that this review provide one basis for evaluating the current progress regarding...
BGC Engineering Inc. (BGC) conducted a review of existing tailings technologies for the Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN). Over the years, many technologies have been proposed and field tested but they have been rejected for lack of technical or economic feasibility. With no...
Techman Engineering Ltd. was jointly commissioned by the Reclamation Research Technical Advisory Committee and the Oil Sands Environmental Study Group to obtain state-of-the-art information on the propagation of selected woody plants. The purpose was: a) to obtain information on the propagation...
The objectives of our research program were to: (1) study biological activities in oil sands mature fine tailings and oil sands process-affected water, (2) develop microbial biofilm seed to support engineered biological processes with enhancement measures, and (3) review available bioreactor...
This report is not intended to be a definitive review of published literature concerning environmental changes which might occur in northern ecosystems as a result of massive industrial development. Rather, it is intended to summarize a large number of surveys and some research of a distinctly...
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...
