Field sites for this study were established in 1987 shortly after the completion of construction of two pipelines in southern Alberta. The Dry Mixed Grass and Mixed Grass Ecoregions (Milo Pipeline Lateral) and the Aspen Parkland, Montane and Fescue Grassland Ecoregions (Porcupine Hills Lateral)...
Interim report on reclamation for afforestation by suitable native and introduced tree and shrub speciesDownload
AOSERP project VE 7.1 was initiated to carry out field investigations in the revegetation of oi1 sands mine wastes (waste dumps and tailing sand) with trees and shrubs. The main objective of the project is to select species of trees and shrubs which are adapted to conditions on these waste...
This report outlines the progress made in 1975 in the Revegetation Research Program which is co-ordinated through the Botany Section of the Plant Industry Laboratory. This program is a joint research project co-sponsored by Alberta Agriculture, Alberta Environment, Alberta Highways and the Oil...
Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Progress Report #4. Soils.Download
Introduction This is the fourth report in this series of reports on the revegetation of disturbed non-cultivated areas in Alberta. It presents a change in emphasis from the previous reports. The first three reports dealt mainly with the vegetation using the soil zones as boundaries for the...
Monitoring was continued at instrumented sites which were selected in spring 1976, at Mildred Lake, Supertest Hill, the GCOS dike, and near Richardson Tower. Because of budget limitations, sites at Richardson were only monitored occasionally. However, information was obtained at a number of...
A group of 48 people from government, academia, consultants and the oil sands and plant production industries gathered on November 25, 2013 to discuss the current state of knowledge about shrubs and their current and future use in oil sands reclamation. The Workshop was organized around four key...
Monitoring Procedures for Wellsite, In-Situ Oil Sands and Coal Mine Reclamation in Alberta (MOPRA) – December 2014 UpdateDownload
The scope of the Monitoring Procedure for Reclamation in Alberta (MOPRA) project is to develop a geomatics-based monitoring system to support the Government of Alberta’s efforts for monitoring reclamation success. This software will support the decision making process to screen almost all oil...
Establishment and survival of ground cover plantings on disturbed areas in Alberta. Final report of Phase I.Download
In February of 1973 a meeting of representatives from interested government agencies and industries was held in Edmonton in order to determine the need for research on the revegetation of disturbed areas in Alberta. As a result of this meeting a research project was set up to study the...
Studies were continued in 1976 into the improvement of a five year old revegetated area on a tailings sand dike by the implementation of different fertilizer programs. In June, 1976 levels of available N, P, K and S were adequate for plant growth. However, even where fertilizers were added...
The results are reported of research into the revegetation of two areas on a steeply sloping dike composed of tailings sand from tar sand extraction at the Great Canadian Oil Sand Limited plant at Fort McMurray, Alberta. One area was seeded with three pasture grasses and two legumes in 1971 after...
