    Total tree cover was significantly different among sites on Pittsburgh and Kittanning coal mined sites, but not among Freeport sites. Among coal beds, Kittanning sites had the lowest tree cover (33% avg), Pittsburgh had an average of 67%, while Freeport sites had a multilayered tree cover averaging >%. Abstract Lake Texcoco, located on the eastern edge of Mexico City, had dried significantly during the nineteenth century, a process furthered by the Great Drainage Canal, completed in Although city boosters praised the canal for having eliminated Texcoco’s floods, dust storms arising from the briny lands began to torment the city.

    In fact, land subsidence has been caused by man’s activities in at least 37 of the 50 states of the United States and affects more t km2 in this country alone. Data from a few sites where economic impact is documented suggest a total annual cost to the nation of more than $ million; worldwide, the total economic impact is. @article{osti_, title = {Land reclamation research}, author = {None}, abstractNote = {The United States Department of Energy has assigned its Office of Environment the task of developing methods that will prevent or reduce damages caused by surface mining. Before that task can be accomplished, more must be learned about the functioning of organisms and their surroundings-the ecosystems.

The relationships between the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SWCRA) and the Clean Water Act (CWA) are discussed as they affect active coal surface mines and with particular reference to acid mine drainage. Active coal mines are required to have a CWA permit in order to discharge any pollutants to surface water bodies.

JOURNAL OF ENVIRONMENTAL ECONOMICS AND MANAGEMENT 3, () Land Reclamation and Strip-mined Coal Production in Appalachia1s2 WILLIAM LIN, ROBERT L. SPORE, AND EDMUND A. NEPHEW Energy Conservation Section, Energy Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee Received August IS, This study quantifies the short-run impacts of reclamation.

Abstract To solve topsoil shortages caused by the thinner topsoil layer resulting from open-pit land reclamation in northwestern Chinese grassland areas, the overlying rock and soil layer of an open-pit coal mine in Inner Mongolia was used as a matrix, and different additives were incorporated to improve topsoil alternatives for dump reclamation.

The use of municipal biosolids (sewage sludge), animal manures, and paper mill wastes as mined land soil amendments are reviewed. Mine soils and mining wastes are generally lower in fertility and water holding capacity than natural topsoils and so benefit from the addition of organic matter.

The types of biosolids available, their benefits in land reclamation, health and environmental concerns. Abstract: Reductions in the fieldwork component of many environmental curricula mean that graduates have less practical experience.

This paper attempts to compensate by developing a short, intensive, highly structured field exercise that aims to connect classroom theory to field realities in the context of the management of reclaimed coal-land.

Additional reclamation costs should be covered by a supplemental fund composed generally of permit fees, taxes, or penalties. In many cases, alternative bond systems fail to ensure that funds will be available to reclaim coal mined land in the event of operator default, as required by SMCRA.

Land reclamation is the process of creating new land from the sea. The simplest method of land reclamation involves simply filling the area with large amounts of heavy rock and/or cement, then filling with clay and soil until the desired height is reached.

Draining of submerged wetlands is often used to reclaim land for agricultural use. [Objective] The soils in coal mine reclamation areas often have the problem of poor structure and poor nutrition.

Crop cultivation can improve these problems, but there are some differences in the improvement of surface soil properties of different crops. [Method] In this study, Sesamum indicum, Glycine max, Medicago sativa, Zea mays and Sorghum sudanense were directly planted in the reclaimed.

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Primary data from a survey of four eastern Oklahoma counties were combined with some secondary data to formulate an environmental impact matrix. Four different strategies for coal mining and reclamation served as the framework for analyzing coal mining and reclamation efforts.

Abstract The success or failure of a land reclamation project is to a considerable extent determined by the management of surface runoff and drainage.

Reclaimed overburden tends to allow little infiltration because of compaction during reclamation, subsidence, and the accelerated weathering of coal shales. This rapid production of fine sediment also tends to make subsurface drainage difficult.
