Abstract
Improving inspection procedures for mine waste embankments and decreasing inspector workload through use of remote-sensing techniques were the objectives of these studies. Aerial photogrammetry allows inspection of a number of sites and provides documented, sequential evidence over time of changes in an embankment surface. Satellite monitoring allows information on embankment conditions to be read on demand for even the most remote sites. Landsat information is being used more frequently, although ground resolution is limited.
