Abstract

Land reclamation, particularly of land disturbed by mining, is a major environmental issue throughout the world. Thirty-eight chapters explore the vast complexities involved in reclamation after large-scale disturbances and provide a broad range of perspectives and examples of reclamation efforts. Readers will find specifics, from mapping minesoil to policy-making, from geochemistry to large-scale topography, from the papermill to oil shale, and emerge with an overall understanding of reclamation strategies and challenges.
