The sealing process and crust formation at soil surface

Sealing formation and crust are very common phenomena in many soils worldwide, especially in arid and semiarid soils. Rainfall causes a series of interactions between water and soils compaction, disintegration, detachment, entrainment and deposition. These actions result in the formation of seal, and subsequently the crust of soils.

Phytostabilization of Mine Tailings in Arid and Semiarid

Arid and semiarid soils are often saline, as evaporation rates exceed rainfall and natural salts originate from saline rainfall, unweathered minerals, and fossil salts. In mine tailings operations within arid and semiarid environments, saline groundwater is often used in the beneficiation process, which becomes hypersaline as it is recycled throughout ore processing.
