Investigation of water repellency and critical water content in undisturbed and reclaimed soils from the Athabasca Oil Sands Region of Alberta, Canada
Ecosystems are disturbed to extract synthetic crude oil from the Athabasca Oil Sands Region (AOSR) in northern Alberta, Canada. Successful reclamation of mined oil sands sites depends on maximizing water storage and ...
Evaluation of Preferential Flow Processes in Reclamation Soil Covers
To predict the effectiveness of land reclamation, it is important to understand how water and solutes are transported within reconstructed landscapes. The objective of this study was to examine the influence of preferential ...
Soil conditions and early crop growth after repeated manure applications
Development of the swine and cattle industries has led to an increase of manure application to agricultural lands in Saskatchewan. Studies have been conducted to determine the nutrient benefits of swine manure application. ...
Microbial Regulation of Soil Greenhouse Gas Emissions in a Non-Bloat Legume Grazing System
Cattle pastures are a source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, including enteric methane from ruminating cattle, carbon dioxide (CO2), and nitrous oxide (N2O) from microbial respiration of soil carbon (C) and nitrogen ...
