This text describes the procedures employed in surface mining operations to create usable land after the mining operations cease. Specialists in reclaiming surface mine landscapes explain the principles of reclaiming land for specific uses. Case studies and examples from across the globe are included, planning and design professionals from the USA, Canada, Australia, and Greece. This book should interest professional planners, engineers, lanscape architects, land managers, and environmental scientists.
