About the report

Ground based monitoring methods used to evaluate mine-site rehabilitation have been questioned for their ability to effectively measure the ecological ‘health’ of sites over an appropriate range of spatial and temporal scales. In this context, high-resolution remote sensing potentially can be used to translate ground based survey information into a medium allowing synoptic ecological assessment over multiple scales.
