Installation and Remeasurement of Permanent Sample Plots on Reclaimed Sites (2007)

In 2000, the Soil and Vegetation Working Group (SVWG) of the Cumulative Environmental Management Association (CEMA) implemented a program to monitor changes and long-term development of vegetation, soil quality, and tree growth on reclaimed areas in the Athabasca Oil Sands area near Ft. McMurray, Alberta. Under the program, permanent sample plots (PSPs) are being established and re-measured on reclaimed sites to monitor these characteristics. As of the end of 2007, 50 PSPs have been installed on reclaimed sites under this rogram. The 44 plots installed from 2000 to 2004 used the original measurement standards, with plots installed in 2005, 2006 and 2007 using upgraded (new) standards.
