ABSTRACT:
In recent time land use land cover changes in human influenced area have been a breakthrough for research (Steven, 1987). Degradation and extensive loss of various land cover during open cast mining operation are hoped. In Raniganj coalfield, the continuous opencast mining activities were being done since 1960 for overburden and coal production purposes. Due to rapid interaction of mining aids like dragline, dumper and dozer with bare surface destruction and alteration of land use are happened. Eventually these land use converted into other land uses in due course of time. Therefore it is urgent necessary to understand and compute the environmental influence of open cast coal mining on landscape pattern in and around Raniganj coalfield area. The researcher strives to asses and interpret the pattern of land use change due to opencast coal mining in Sodepur, Salanpur, Sripur, Satgram, Pandaveswer, Kunstoria, Kajora, Kenda, Sonepur Bazari, Bankola and Jhanjra areas of Raniganj coalfield using remotely sensed data (Sarkar, A., 2017).
