Native prairie communities have evolved to produce relatively low but sustained production. Demand for greater production has resulted in overgrazing and, consequently, lower and more unstable annual yields and increased risk of soil erosion. Because the Rough Fescue Prairie is best suited for...
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...
For some geotechnical design projects where soils are exposed to vibration, it becomes necessary to evaluate the strength and deformation characteristics of the soil under existing and/or anticipated vibrations. This thesis presents a summary of an experimental program performed to investigate...
Soil microbial communities in boreal forests are structured by complex interactions among many factors operating simultaneously on large and small spatial scales. Of particular note in the boreal mixedwood, the microbial communities under trembling aspen and white spruce forest floors are...
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...
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...
