A Summary of Land Resource and Groundwater Resource Issues Related to Plains Coal Mine Reclamation in AlbertaDownload
Development and extraction of coal resources in Alberta disrupts the landscape and alters two other important resources, land and groundwater. In order to support coal resource development that was economically and environmentally responsible, the Reclamation Research Technical Advisory Committee...
This is one of a series of reports that presents the findings of the Plains Hydrology and Reclamation Project (PHRP), an interdisciplinary study that focuses primarily on hydrologic aspects of reclamation of surface coal mines in the plains of Alberta. This research has been conducted by the...
Several hundred hectares of peatlands in Alberta have been harvested for horticultural peat moss since the 1960s and have been left unreclaimed. The need to reclaim them to a suitable land use is now recognized. Various kinds of information are required in order to assess land use alternatives...
A review of pertinent literature was conducted to examine the effects of long term storage on topsoil quality in Alberta in order to determine optimum storage methods and periods of storage. Exhaustive computer data searches were conducted to establish the literature base, which was subsequently...
This literature review compiles information on salt movement in disturbed soils, particularly in soils that had been disturbed by pipeline construction. The review had two main objectives: to assess climatic and soil conditions under which salts will move out of the root zone in a disturbed soil...
To provide coordinated direction for reclamation research in Alberta, the need to review the current understanding and the role of soil physical properties in soil disturbance related activities was identified. Surface coal mining, pipeline and wellhead construction, oil sands extraction, timber...
