318 Risks and Remediation of Post-Mining Soils: II (Includes Student Competition)
Poster SessionSSSA Division: Soil Chemistry
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.
