Assessing the long-term impact of acid deposition and the risk of soil acidification in boreal forests in the Athabasca oil sands region in Alberta, CanadaDownload
Significant amounts of SO2 and NOx have been emitted from the Athabasca oil sands region (AOSR) in Alberta, Canada, in the past several decades. The impact of acid deposition on forest ecosystems and the risk of soil acidification were assessed in jack pine (Pinus banksiana) and trembling aspen...
Nitrogen Availability and Salinity as Limiting Factors for Lodgepole Pine (Pinus contorta) and White Spruce (Picea glauca) Growth on Reclaimed Sites in the Athabasca Oil Sands Region in Alberta, CanadaDownload
Unfavorable conditions of reclaimed soils for vegetation establishment have been a concern for successful oil sands reclamation. Growth limitations of planted trees have been observed in the Athabasca Oil Sands Region (AOSR) in Alberta, Canada, but the factors limiting tree growth were poorly...
