Pipeline structures can be subjected to excessive tensile strains due to a variety of environmental agents including but not limited to slope instabilities, seismic forces, freezing and thawing cycle of the permafrost in arctic regions. In addition to environmental and geotechnical effects, large...
Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are currently at the crux of political, environmental, technological, and cultural discussions due to climate change. A drastic reduction of GHG emissions is needed in order to mitigate potentially catastrophic climate change impacts. This thesis presents the...
In 1981, a study was initiated near Princess, Alberta to evaluate single-lift pipeline construction impacts on Solonetzic mixed prairie rangeland. In August 1991, a further evaluation of the study sites was conducted to determine the longevity of the changes that took place on the 1981...
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...
Wireless sensor networks have become a very important tool for monitoring physical and environmental conditions over a wide area. These networks are distributed collections of small sensor nodes. Typically, sensor nodes collect data that must converge to a single sink location, possibly across...
Topsoil Handling During Pipeline Construction in Potentially Arable Forested Luvisols of Northwest AlbertaDownload
The objective of this study was to evaluate several pipeline topsoil stripping depths to determine whether they result in land capability equivalent to that of adjacent forested lands broken for cultivation. Topsoil stripping depths were 0 cm, 15 cm and 30 cm. Soils chosen for the study were...
The objective of this literature review was to evaluate the available information on the effects of stripping versus not stripping topsoil during pipeline construction in potentially arable Luvisolic soils in forested areas. A profile description representative of an undisturbed Luvisol under...
Transportation corridor study. Volume 2 Appendix: Extracts from existing literature compiled for use of Study GroupDownload
With the large number of persons involved in this particular study it was decided that considerable time (money) could be saved by gathering into one volume extracts of available literature. Reports, studies by other groups, articles, information and literature in regard to environmental impact,...
It is the purpose of this report to examine existing legislation to determine (1) what machinery is available for the creation of a transportation corridor, (2) what problems accrue or could accrue by virtue of that legislation. Examination of this area raises several questions: (1) what is the...
