Macropore flow on a reclaimed surface mine: infiltration ...

Surface coal mining in central Pennsylvania alters the physical and hydrological properties of soil from its undisturbed state and changes the surface hydrologic response to precipitation. Newly reclaimed minesoils exhibit low, steady-state rates of infiltration (1-2 cm/h) and produce runoff dominated by infiltration-excess overland flow.

2020-8-21  In this type of mining, layers of earth are removed to allow for the extraction of coal not far beneath the earth's surface. Prior to the enactment of stringent state and federal reclamation laws, some acreage disturbed by surface mining was not reclaimed— or at least, not reclaimed in accordance with present-day reclamation standards.

Switchgrass potential on reclaimed surface mines for ...

West Virginia contains vast expanses of reclaimed surface mine lands and could potentially benefit from the production of switchgrass as a biofuel feedstock. Furthermore, switchgrass production could satisfy Surface Mining Reclamation and Control Act of 1977 (SMCRA) requirements for reclamation bond release to mine operators.

Coal mine reclamation - Global Energy Monitor

2021-4-29  Coal mine reclamation is the rehabilitation of land after coal mining operations have stopped. It is a requirement of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act (SMCRA) of 1977.. As mining operations cease bulldozers and scrapers are used to reshape the disturbed area. Reclamation should allow for the area to be resistant to soil erosion and, based on the soil requirements, fertilized and ...

Land Reclamation - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

The Surface Mining Act placed a levy per ton on all coal produced in the USA. This fund can be used to finance the restoration of areas that were not reclaimed in the past and other action needed to alleviate off-site impacts of the unreclaimed areas. From 1981 a new consideration has been given to the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act.
