carlson.geofluvDr. Yaron Ziv of Ben-Gurion University of Negev, Israel, toured Natural Regrade reclamation sites on March of this year with Nicholas Bugosh, developer of the GeoFluv reclamation design method that is used in Carlson Software’s Natural Regrade. Bugosh accompanied Dr. Ziv as they viewed more than 2000 acres of mining-disturbed lands at active and fully reclaimed mine sites to see how companies are efficiently constructing these functional landforms during mining and how the land has responded after reclamation. Dr. Ziv, a spatial ecologist, was very impressed that the reclaimed land provided ecological niches that support a diverse ecosystem and that the sites have withstood extreme storms (approaching 200-year recurrence interval) without requiring maintenance and repair.
