This application shows how mining has changed the slope and elevation
profiles of landscapes in West Virginia, along with providing an estimate of
total spoil volume deposited into headwater valleys as a result of mining. The number
that shows up when you click on a watershed is an estimate of how deeply mine spoil would bury
the watershed if the spoil were spread evenly across it.
This application was built with support from Duke University's
Data+ program with help from Molly Rosenstein, Tess Harper, and Aaron Berdanier
