Abstract
This Special Issue of the International Journal of Coal Geology is named "Applications of remote sensing and GIS for monitoring of coal fires, mine subsidence, environmental impacts of coal-mine closure and reclamation". The main aim in this special issue is to promote efficient and effective exploitation of coal resources with the use of remote sensing (RS) and geographical information systems (GIS). In this special issue, a multitude of research studies spanning from coal fire monitoring, coal-fire related greenhouse gas emission estimation, underground-mining related land subsidence mapping, the analyses of chemical changes in lignite mining lakes, pollution monitoring of abandoned mine sites to reclaimed land are addressed by application of RS and GIS.
