Results from the Land Capability Calibration Sites in the Oil Sands Region

In 2000, Syncrude Canada, Suncor Energy and Albian Sands initiated a three-year program to establish about 80 long term soil and vegetation monitoring plots (S-V) plus 120 temporary capability plots (Cap.) throughout the oil sands region to correlate land capability ratings and forest productivity (site indices). The program was guided by the Oil Sands Soil and Vegtation Working Group and was conducted by AMEC Earth and Environmental Limited and Paragon Soil and Environmental Consulting Inc.
