The purpose of this report is to demonstrate the flexibility of remote sensing techniques to provide data that will implement mined- lands reclamation in an efficient and cost-effective manner. An operation program is presented to use satellite remote sensing data, collateral data, and automated image analysis. The program will provide (1) an inventory of coal and copper mines and mine waste in Arizona, (2) techniques to periodically monitor mining areas using multitemporal classification and image prediction techniques, and (3) the delineation of high-priority areas for future reclamation and current land-use planning of Arizona mining areas based on environmental hazards indices computed using classified scenes and collateral data.
