Mines, by their nature, suffer from excessive errosion. This can cause unsafe work conditions or potentially environmental contamination. The potential downside is worker injury and/or fines.
Using the same method he once used to map the drainage networks of glaciers using satelite imagery, Dr. Joe Hupy "burned in" the drainage network for a aggregate mine Menet Aero was working with.
That data was then used to design remediation measures so that when the rain fell, the water would go where the mine wanted it to.
