dc.description.abstractThe Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 requires an inventory of hazardous mining areas within each state and periodic monitoring of active mines. In 1979 the Office of Surface Mining contracted with the University of Arizona Applied Remote Sensing Program (ARSPL Office of Arid Lands Studies, and the Mining and Geological Engineering Department for an evaluation of Landsat as a means for meeting these requirements. The objectives were to inventory mining activity in Arizona, where there are 41 active surface mines, and develop a mine monitoring system, delineate mined lands with high hazard potentials, and develop a training package for state agency personnel.
