A Proposed Evaluation System for Wildlife Habitat Reclamation in the Mountains and Foothills Biomes of Alberta: Proposed Methodology and Assessment HandbookDownload
This report was completed under the auspices of the Mountains and Foothills Reclamation Research Program. This report is intended to provide Government and Industry staff with up to date technical information to assist in the development of guidelines and operating procedures. The report is also...
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...
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 manual - provides information on: • the basics of material extraction and processing, • planning of a pit or quarry operation from start-up to closure, and • selecting the best land use or uses for your reclaimed site, Important considerations in reclamation planning and methods for...
In a short period of time, the conversation around handling woody materials – deadwood such as logs, branches and stumps – has shifted dramatically. From piling and burning, to mulching and now towards keeping ‘whole logs’ on sites. The changes have led to confusion and this guide is intended to...
A preliminary review of black bear – human interactions and recommended strategies for the AOSERP study areaDownload
The purpose of the report was to examine the components which have resu1ted in the establishment and maintenance of nuisance bear populations (i.e., the interaction between bears and a food supply generated by man's activity), and the management strategies which may be implemented to reduce the...
Monitoring of environmental conditions in and around oil sands developments has been underway for years. However, recent reviews have indicated the need for a more comprehensive, scientifically-rigourous and transparent monitoring program and have provided recommendations for design and...
This document provides an evaluation of currently available rainfall runoff sediment production methodologies, identifies key parameters, and outlines field programs to gather data for model calibration. 1. RAINFALL RUNOFF There are two distinct requirements related to rainfall runoff. Firstly,...
The calibrated DOSTOC, NUSTOC and UNSTOC models from 1989 were used effectively to simulate measured 1990 Athabasca River water quality. Changes in effluent loadings at the two pulp mills and an increase in river flows in the lower Athabasca Basin accounted for some noticeable improvements in...
Baseline Growth Performance Levels and Assessment Procedures for Commercial Tree Species in Alberta's Mountains and FoothillsDownload
Field work was undertaken on cut-over or burned sites during the summer of 1986 to acquire data on juvenile height development of commercial tree species growing in coal-bearing areas of the Eastern Slopes of Alberta. These data were used to define reasonable expectations of early growth...
