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...
The Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN) was originally proposed to the Oil Sands Environmental Management Division of Alberta Environment by the School of Energy and the Environment (SEE), University of Alberta in December 2007. The need for OSRIN was described as follows:...
The Honourable Mr. Yurko has requested the Conservation and Utilization Committee to establish an interdepartmental task force or project team with additional membership from the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry and others, if necessary, to define our applied research proposal which the...
A random sample of 1,032 Albertans, aligned with the Statistics Canada 2006 demographic profile of the Province of Alberta, completed an on-line survey with two elements: a conjoint best-worse survey, and a set of attitudinal questions. The goal of the CSI-OSRIN Oil Sands Survey (the survey) was...
The Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN) has identified six program areas in which it is funding work. Within each program area, we have launched projects to scope out the state of knowledge, identify knowledge gaps, and provide insights regarding R&D priorities. • Tailings...
3 reports available - Studies of physical properties of soils and mined materials in relation to reclamation - Studies of chemical properties of soils and methods of improving mined material for plant growth - Sulphur deposition and acidification of soils in the oil sands area
A study of small rodent populations, habitat use, and amounts of small mammal damage to woody-stemmed plants on reclamation areas of Suncor Inc. lease was begun in July 1978 and continued until November 1979. Three species of small rodent were present in these areas; Microtus pennsylvanicus was...
BGC Engineering Inc. (BGC) conducted a scoping study of the state of knowledge related to technologies for reclaiming oil sands tailings substrates to upland boreal forests and wetlands for the Oil Sands Research and Information Network (OSRIN). The objective of the scoping study is to help...
During 1976, a variety of methods and materials were used in the search for afforestation practices that will assist in the establishment of a self sustaining vegetation cover compatible with land use objectives for the A1berta oil sands area. The project study area is located on the Great,...
One of the major environmental problems which arises with surface mining of the oil sands in the Fort McMurray-Fort MacKay area of Alberta is the permanent loss of the natural vegetation and the drastic change in the soils that supported it. It has been estimated that with a production target of...
