Presentation
The international community is developing strategies to limit temperature increases in response to climate change. The current focus of global efforts is on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the largest fraction of which are caused by coal combustion. Particularly, the EU, at the forefront of the green energy transition, has experienced the most s...
Presentation
The flooding of mine workings is the most common method for closing underground mines. The natural hydrodynamic balance of the aquifers is then restored in the rock mass depleted by mining operations. Consequently, increased pore pressure implies the occurrence of land surface uplift. The closure of an underground mine has been evaluated primarily...
Thesis
The dissertation examines the modelling of land subsidence caused by mining-induced drainage. The doctorate consists of a cycle of three scientific publications that are thematically cohesive. The research was conducted at the hard coal mine Lubelski Wegiel „Bogdanka” S.A. in Poland. There are four distinct sections of the thesis. First, hydrogeolo...
Presentation
Land subsidence due to mining is primarily caused by the removal of a deposit from a rock mass and the formation of a post-mining void. This type of land subsidence damages surface and underground infrastructure and adversely affects the safety of surface users. Underground mining, however, is also associated with the drainage of rock layers, for b...
Presentation
One of the most serious direct consequences of underground mining is land subsidence, which can damage both surface and underground infrastructure and even put surface users' safety at risk. Nonetheless, extensive pumping operations are necessary to carry out mining activity. Thus, the effect of coal extraction is attributed not only to land subsid...
Article
Full-text available
Land subsidence caused by groundwater withdrawal induced by mining is a relatively unknown phenomenon. This is primarily due to the small scale of such movements compared to the land subsidence caused by deposit extraction. Nonetheless, the environmental impact of drainage related land subsidence remains underestimated. The research was carried out...
Article
Full-text available
Horizontal strains related to mining-induced subsidence may endanger infrastructure and surface users' safety. While directional horizontal strains should be well determined, appropriate solutions for a complete assessment of the terrain surface deformation field are still required. As a result, the presented study examined a new method for calcula...

Research has been conducted in the area of the closed copper ore mine (Konrad) as well as the anhydrite and gypsum mine (Lubichów) in south-eastern Poland. The mining operation was carried out in the...
Conference Paper
Mining exploitation is associated with the occurrence of adverse environmental effects. The most serious of such effects is land subsidence. Although land subsidence can be well predicted and mitigated by several methods, nevertheless, the extraction of mineral deposits is also associated with induced seismicity. The occurrence of seismic events ca...
Article
Full-text available
One of the most common consequences of pumping water from groundwater reservoirs includes land surface movements. The main cause of this phenomenon is the excess use of groundwater resources, which leads to the development of continuous deformations. In Poland, the reduction of rock mass due to drainage is most often connected with mining operation...
Article
Full-text available
The environmental impact assessment of underground mining usually includes the direct effects of exploitation. These are damage to rock mass and land subsidence. Continuous dewatering of the aquifer system is, however, necessary to carry out underground mining operations. Consequently, the drainage of the aquifer system is observed at a regional sc...

Dewatering of rock matrix related to deep mining affects groundwater systems on regional-scale worldwide. Generally, the reach of this phenomenon exceeds mining area boundaries and is nearly impossible to determine accurately. Furthermore, comprehensive modelling of rock matrix dewatering is a complex issue. The main reason for this seems to be the...

Poster
Land subsidence is one of the most important environmental effects of water pumping from groundwater systems. It is a result of the compaction of compressible aquifers. In global terms, the leading cause of this phenomenon is the growing demand for freshwater. Land subsidence induced by rock mass drainage can reach the total values up to more than...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Land subsidence is a threat that occurs worldwide as a result of the withdrawal of fluid and also underground mining. The subsidence is mainly due to excessive groundwater withdrawal from certain types of rocks, such as fine-grained sediments. Mitigating the effects of land subsidence generally requires careful observations of the temporal change i...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The assessment of the impact of mining-induced seismicity on the natural environment and infrastructure is often limited to the analysis of terrain surface vibrations. However, similar seismic phenomena, like earthquakes, may also imply dislocations and deformations of the rock mass. Such ground movements may occur in areas which are not directly u...
Article
Full-text available
Earthquake occurrence is usually unpredictable apart from sites in the vicinity of volcanoes. It is not easy to measure displacements caused by seismic phenomena using classical geodetic methods, which are based on point survey. Therefore, the surveying of ground movements caused by seismic events should be carried out continuously. Nowadays, remot...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Prediction and monitoring of earthquakes and human-induced seismicity is still a crucial issue primarily due to the random nature of that phenomena. The continuous monitoring of earthquakes made by seismology is well known and developed. The remaining effects of earthquakes – ground displacements, are much more problematic in measurement. Moreover,...

Project
The goal of the project is to develop a new method to predict drainage-related land subsidence. This method will be based on deep learning and Satellite Radar Interferometry (InSAR). Methods of artificial intelligence (AI) allow replacement of complex specifications required to establish traditional models. Moreover, they have not been thoroughly used to solve the discussed issues yet. Furthermore, InSAR offers a monitoring system for land subsidence. By combining these two methods, a novel algorithm will be developed to allow modelling and examining the characteristics of land subsidence in conditions involving drainage of the rock mass. This project is funded by PRELUDIUM grant from the National Science Center in Poland. Principal investigator: Artur Guzy Supervisor: Agnieszka Malinowska www.watersubsidence.com
Project
Report 1 No. G2017001 is supported by China’s Belt and Road initiative. There are three main goals of the project: 1. To deepen the knowledge about research done on mining subsidence in China and Poland, 2. To develop a novel method for the damage risk assessment for the buildings/pipelines in China, 3. To apply InSAR for ground movements detection and to establish parameters of the models applied in order to predict ground deformation.
Project
The goal of the project is to develop a methodology for measuring and analyzing methods that would enable to separate the dynamic phenomena from the others in terms of surface movements. This adjustment will increase the reliability of geodetic measurements carried out on mining terrains. The results of the research may also clarify the impact of mining tremors on the surface structures. Within the project, continuous telemetric measurements, measurements of the surface structures tilt, periodic measurements with the use of GPS (high frequency), and remote sensing measurements (InSAR) are planned. The analytical part of the project will be based on statistical calculations and spatial analysis (GIS).
