Use of snow capture for land rehabilitation in Arctic oilfields / M. Torre Jorgenson, Timothy C. Cater, Michael R. Joyce.

Title: Use of snow capture for land rehabilitation in Arctic oilfields / M. Torre Jorgenson, Timothy C. Cater, Michael R. Joyce.
Author(s): Jorgenson, M. Torre.
Cater, Timothy C.
Joyce, Michael R.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Wushan, Guangzhou: South China University of Technology Press
In: Permafrost. Sixth International Conference. Proceedings (Vol. 1), July 5-9, 1993, Beijing China. (1993.),
Abstract: Low summer precipitation in Arctic Alaska leads to low soil moisture on gravel fill and mine overburden, and is problematic for rehabilitating lands degraded by oil development. After preliminary field tests on capturing drifting snow and impounding meltwater, concept was expanded in 1990 to create two perched ponds at Kuparuk oilfield by constructing large berms, 4 m high, perpendicular to prevailing winds of winter storms, and using smaller berms to impound meltwater. Berms are cheaper than snow fences and require no maintenance.
