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.

Land disturbed by surface mining. Reclamation of land disturbed by mining for coal is now firmly established in most developed countries, on the scientific analysis of substrates, experimental determinations of amendment requirements and detailed planting and sowing regimes. As a result, land is restored to a wide range of after-uses. For example, since the passage of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) in the U.S., direct fees have been collected by government agencies from existing coal mining companies. Various states and Native American tribes have used over US$ billion of those funds to reclaim almost “, acres of hazardous high.
Reclamation specialists have been working under the guidance of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act to restore lands disturbed from mining activities since the s. In contrast, the reclamation of oil and gas lands is not regulated through a uniform federal act, and the resulting regulatory structure is complex and can be confusing. Get this from a library!
