Research conducted during this project has utilized remote sensing images and data to study surface vegetation identification, vegetation biomass and drainage patterns on coal strip mined land. Study sites were located in Boone, Randolph and Macon counties in central Missouri. This report presents the results of surface vegetation and drainage analyses of those sites and methodologies used for accurate, timely and useful applications of remotely gathered data for monitoring coal surface mining reclamation activities. A computer based technique was developed for assessing the extent of reestablished vegetation on the study sites. Color infrared aerial photographs obtained over the sites were scanned and converted into digital outputs.
