Persistence of subsoiling effects on the soil physical and hydraulic properties in a reconstructed soilDownload
Surface mining is one of the most significant forms of anthropogenic disturbance to natural and managed ecosystems. In Alberta, mining disturbs large areas in the Mixedwood Boreal natural region and recovery is often slow because of poor soil quality, specifically the high degree of compaction....
