Research
Many LRIGS participants are actively conducting land reclamation research at the University of Alberta in one of the many faculties involved in this field including Agricultural, Life and Environmental Sciences, Engineering and Science. They come from diverse educational backgrounds and countries. Participant research encompasses development and implementation of reclamation strategies from micrometre to kilometre spatial scales and from short to long term temporal scales. Participants conduct field research on all kinds of disturbed areas, including these associated with energy systems, agriculture, forestry, recreation, urban and other land uses. Students conduct laboratory and bench scale research and simulation modeling in modern, efficient facilities. Research and teaching is conducted on disturbed lands across Canada, internationally and in association with industry and regulatory partners.
