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...
A study was initiated in 1988 to evaluate the effects of pipeline construction on soil compaction in the province of Alberta. The pipelines were located throughout Alberta on a number of different soils and were constructed using various techniques. Cone penetration resistance of soils (soil...
The degree of soil compaction is dependent on many variables including soil type and soil conditions as well as vehicle type and traffic density. Soil compaction can lead to limited plant development because of poor aeration, low nutrient and water availability, slow water permeability and...
