Periodic Report - IMPACTMIN (Impact monitoring of mineral resources exploitation)

Project ID: 244166
Funded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT

Abstract

This is the second periodic report for the IMPACTMIN project which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). IMPACTMIN's main aim was to develop a new toolset for impact monitoring of mining operations using Earth observations (EO) and in situ data. More specifically, the project investigated the state-of-the-art technology to monitor subtle changes in the environment caused by mining activities and how that could be properly reported and therefore, developed new methods and a corresponding toolset for the environmental and socio-economic impact monitoring of mining activities using EO.

The report summarises the project context and objectives and goes on with the activities undertaken since the beginning of the project as well as the outcomes. An overview of the expected results and their potential impact is also provided.
