318 Risks and Remediation of Post-Mining Soils: II (Includes Student Competition)

Poster Session
SSSA Division: Soil Chemistry
Mine soil reclamation and landscape restoration have become important parts of the sustainable development strategy in many countries. Mining has severely disturbed ecosystems, resulting in soils that contain contaminants and that have nutrient limitations. 

New approaches are necessary for soil reclamation and landscape restoration. Feasible measurements should take into account several factors such as soil properties (biological activity, content of available nutrients and also contaminants, soil heterogeneity, sampling strategies), climatic conditions and plant species. Modeling approaches are necessary to predict the potential long-term soil development. 

The session will focus on the pedogenesis, biogeochemical cycles and linked microbial induced processes and modeling approaches during soil reclamation and remediation.
