The dissipation of bromacil in Humic Luvic Gleysols amended with cow manure was evaluated at two sites in northwestern Alberta from 1984 to 1987. At each site, nine locations were sampled in 4 cm increments from 0 to 40 cm, and analyzed for bromacil, pH, electrical conductivity (EC), and organic...

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...
Effect of Pipeline Construction on Soil Strengths of Soil Horizons in Alberta: 1990 Final reportDownload
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...
Impacts of Overstripping Topsoil on Native Rangelands in Southeastern Alberta: A Literature ReviewDownload
This literate review evaluates the information available on the effects of overstripping topsoil during pipeline construction on native rangelands in southeastern Alberta. The effects on soil quality and handling of Chernozemic and Solonetzic soils are presented in detail as these are the...
Measured Concentrations of Metals and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Plants, Berries and Soil Located in the Oil Sands Region North of Fort McMurray, AlbertaDownload
Wilson, C., Hopkins, D., Wall, K.
The objective of this study is to measure and characterize concentrations of chemicals in plants, berries and soil predominantly located north of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Methods included opportunistic sampling via collection of root vegetables, above ground vegetables, berries and soil and...
Next-Generation Sequencing of Protists as a Measure of Natural Soil Microbial Eukaryotic Community in the Oil Sands RegionDownload
Quideau, S., Richardson, E., Dacks, J.B., MacIntyre, G., Adl, S., Walker, G.
Soil plays a central role in the functioning of all terrestrial ecosystems. Among the many ecosystem services to which soil contributes are: purification and storage of water, sequestration of organic matter, nutrient cycling for plant growth, and conservation of healthy faunal and microbial...
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...
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...
Topsoil Handling During Pipeline Construction in Potentially Arable Forested Luvisols of Northwest AlbertaDownload
Patterson, T.J., Fedkenheuer, A.W., Faye, R.G., Finlayson, N.M., Luther, S.M.
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...
