Land use land cover change detection in the mining areas of V.D. Yalevsky coal mineRussia

The dynamics of land use/land cover (LULC) changes, the effect of coal mining on the LULC changes, and the regional environmental impact are discussed in this study. The different land use classes mainly Forest, Water Bodies, Road, Mining Area, Agriculture and Grass in the study area of V.D. Yalevsky coal field area in Kemerovo region of Russia are identified. On the other hand the impact of V.D. Yalevsky coal mine activities on LULC change on the environment and teritory are discussed. The LULC changes in the V.D. Yalevsky coal field area were analyzed for a period of 27 years e.g., from the year 1992 to 2019. The changes were detected on a 13-years time interval using Landsat-4 TM, Landsat-8 OLI. Furthermore supervised classification techniques using maximum likelihood method through ENVI (Environment for Visualizing Images) 5.1software was utilized. In addition post classification change detection method through ENVI was used to investigate the changes. The study reveals decrement in LULC categories of forest to 25.35km², water bodies to –0.94km², agriculture to –98.48km², road to -10.80km². However increment in the rate of mining area to 100.72km² and grass cover 34.86 km² during the study period. Meanwhile 90.18 % overall accuracy and (0.87) kappa coefficient for 1992 classified image, 93.41 % overall accuracy and (0.91)Kappa coefficient for 2006 classified image and 88.69 % overall accuracy and (0.85) kappa coefficient for 2019 classified image were obtained.
