Soil quality criteria for the reclamation of disturbed lands
Alberta. Soil Quality Criteria Working Group.
Report seeks to develop guidelines for: soil mapping and sampling for baseline and post disturbances; overburden sampling; analytical requirements; physical, chemical and biological criter for determining the suitability of land for revegetation; and the use of soil as a means for the disposal of sewage sludge, animal waste and fly ash.

needs. Bond amounts are generally tied to the amount of disturbed land within the permitted area, and this amount can be adjusted as the disturbed acreage changes. DEQ currently administers 86 operating permits and their respective reclamation bonds. Bond amounts can be changed or released as situations change or as reclamation criteria are Size: 96KB. Land reclamation comprises those activities instigated to return a mechanically disturbed site to some later successional state. Besides the introduction of suitable plant species to disturbed lands, reclamation generally requires measures to enhance long-term soil nutrient content, moisture retention or drainage, and mitigation of toxic. Written from an agronomic rather than an engineering perspective, this introduction to soil and water conservation explores a full range of topics and environmental issues, including some ignored or overlooked in other books on the subject. Comprehensive, up-to-date, and accessible, it considers the hazards posed by erosion, sedimentation, and pollution, and describes the techniques needed to Reviews: 1.

Pages: This book provides a comprehensive overview of remediation and rehabilitation techniques and strategies for contaminated and anthropogenically disturbed land. Rehabilitation approaches in the urban environment, such as brownfield redevelopment and urban mining, are discussed.
In relation to contaminated land, techniques for soil containment and decontamination of soil, soil vapour and. Reclamation procedures should ensure that disturbed soils are physically stabilized to provide a secure substrate for revegetation.
Unless otherwise agreed upon in determining the post-reclamation land use, reclamation of native prairie should result in: the creation of an environment that will allow for the establishment of. Reclamation of Drastically Disturbed Lands This book is a complete revision of the first edition with the same title.
With a few exceptions, different authors than those of the first edition have written the chapters in this edition. These revisions follow significant changes in the coal min. Top-and sub-soil are separated during the mining process to retain topsoil quality, and each type of soil is either directly re-spread on locations undergoing reclamation or stockpiled for future.

In the semiarid lands of the Rocky Mountain Region of the United States, precipitation rates, soil organic matter, and biomass are low, making successful reclamation of disturbed lands challenging.
Reclamation specialists have been working under the guidance of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act to restore lands disturbed from mining activities since the s. In contrast, the reclamation of oil and gas lands.
Use of Mulches and Soil Stabilizers for Land Reclamation (Pages: ) Michael R. Norland. In land reclamation, the soil scientist is presented with many new problems and challenges. The wide array of chemical and physical tests already developed for engineering, agriculture and forestry may have a direct application to land reclamation problems.
However, the study of many soil characteristics may require the modification of existing methods or the development of new procedures to. These were later updated and published in Soil quality criteria for the reclamation of disturbed lands book the Soil Quality Criteria Relative to Disturbance and Reclamation (Soil Quality Criteria Working Group ).
This document formed the basis of the majority of the soilsbased conservation and reclamation Cited by: Land moves from the Disturbed category to the Soils Placed category once reclamation material is placed as per the approved Reclamation and Soil Placement Plans.
Temporary Reclamation (Terrestrial) – Areas being managed where vegetation has been seeded, planted, or ingressed, where there is an expectation that future disturbance may occur at.
The Web Soil Survey can be used to provide an idea of the soil types found in area to be disturbed (however, a professional soil classifier will be needed to determine the actual soil types found on-site).
Remember, the inventory should establish a framework for post-reclamation monitoring. An accepted set of criteria for soil quality would permit comparative analyses of farming systems and would help to systematize the debate and research that attempt to define and implement the concept of sustainability.
The comparison of alternative farming systems with a set of soil quality criteria would be only the first step in a more. Soil quality assessment in land reclamation. Author / Creator Ojekanmi, Abimbola; The development and application of quantitative soil quality assessment (SQA) concepts involve calibrating soil quality indicators (SQI), such as soil organic carbon (SOC), to soil management goals such as yield or biomass productivity to create soil quality-scoring functions (SQF).Author: Abimbola Ojekanmi.
