Cannon, K.R., Finlayson, N.M., Landsburg, S.
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...

Finlayson, N.M., Landsburg, S., Cannon, K.R.
This study was initiated in 1988 to evaluate the effects of pipeline construction on soil strengths of various soils in the province of Alberta. The pipelines were scattered throughout Alberta on a number of different soils and were constructed using various techniques. At each of the fifteen...
Quality Control Considerations for Overburden Earth-fill Tailings Dam Construction in the Oil SandsDownload
Quality control and construction methods for an oil sands overburden tailings dam in the Albertan Oil Sands can differ from these conventional construction methods due to two governing factors: A high overburden to ore ratio with a complex geology requiring significant waste management effort and...
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...
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...
