Investigation of Structural Geology and Coal Mine Subsidence Potential in Colorado Springs Area Using Remote Sensing and Gis Technology.
Proceeds of Geotech '92 Denver Colorado 1992 Aug; :258-278
The purpose of this research was to determine the extent to which remote sensing lineament analysis techniques can be used to identify geologic structures that may affect the location and migration of subsidence over abandoned, underground coal mines in the Colorado Springs area. Ultimately, these techniques could be useful for identifying such geologic structures at other abandoned mine land sites. Landsat satellite images and aerial photographs were used to interpret the geologic structure of the area. A geographic information system was used to integrate the diverse data sets involved in the study and to allow reliable and reproducible spatial registration and analysis of the data.
