Assessment of the progression of coal mine subsidence in Colorado, using InSAR
MetadataShow full item record
Coal mine subsidence is the deformation of the Earth’s surface caused by the collapse of rock and unconsolidated deposits into underground mine voids or entries, induced by the extraction of coal. This deformation can cause damage to roads, buildings, utility lines, or pipelines. Colorado’s history of coal mining dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and continues to this date. Inactive mines in Colorado pose a potential risk for 25,000 people along the front range urban corridor. An important step towards mitigating this problem, is to assess the applicability of remote sensing ...
