|Title:||The effect of longwall mine subsidence on native vegetation and agricultural environments||Contributor(s):||Trotter, Tieneke (author); Frazier, Paul (author); Jenkins, Ross (author); Lamb, David (author); Wilkes, Janelle (author)||Publication Date:||2007||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/8427||Abstract:||Longwall mining generally results in subsidence of the land surface. While the extent and nature of subsidence on surface topography is reasonably well understood the effects on surface environments (agricultural and native vegetation) arc less well known. In this paper we will describe the initial stage of a three year ACARP project to develop scientific protocols to quantify changes to above-ground environments. Specifically, the project objectives are to: quantify the effects of longwall mine subsidence on agricultural and terrestrial native vegetation; develop industry-standard methods for monitoring these effects; optimise monitoring quality, quantity, safety aspects, timeliness and cost effectiveness through the integration of high resolution remote sensing and ground-based sampling.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Engineers Australia Regional Convention, Pokolbin, Australia, 23rd - 25th March, 2007||Conference Details:||Engineers Australia Regional Convention, Pokolbin, Australia, 23rd - 25th March, 2007||Source of Publication:||Wines, Mines & Community: Engineering the Future for Regional Australia - Proceedings of the 2007 Regional Convention, Newcastle Division, Engineers Australia, p. 219-221||Publisher:||University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||050204 Environmental Impact Assessment||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||850201 Coal Mining and Extraction||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/32193453||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 353
