Open pit mining in the city of Kovdor



Open pit mining in the city of Kovdor (Murmansk Region, Russia). Open quarries and bare ground are very well visible in blue and purple. A mosaic of wildfire areas of different ages (bright magenta, pink, and light green spots) surrounds a large area around the mines. There are some pine forests left (dark green and dark magenta spots) north of the mine. Light green areas represent former clearcuts. Particularly large former clearcut areas are located west of the mining area. The only remaining natural areas here are wetlands, indicated by light gray and blue spots inside the clearcut areas.
