Abstract


APPLICATION OF GEOMORPHOMETRIC METHODS IN MINING-RELATEDGROUND DEFORMATION ANALYSIS – AN EXAMPLE OF THE “NOWY KOŚCIÓŁ” COPPER MINE(“THE OLD COPPER BASIN”, NORTH-SUDETIC SYNCLINORIUM)

Abstract. During mapping work carried out since October 2015 in the Nowy Kościół area in the Kaczawskie Foothills, Western Sudetes, a number of morphological forms were identified and catalogued. They indicate surface transformation due to ceased mining activity. Several depressions and grabens were recognized during the digital terrain model and satellite images analysis. The range of deformation has been determined, and their spatial parameters and the maximal depression of the ground level within the mining area have been estimated and described. Such ground level depressions have not been examined in detail before. The main aim of the studies was to determine the usefulness of geomorphometric methods based on LiDAR digital elevation models (DEM) for the purposes of high quality description of surface deformation caused by underground mining operations.
