Paper Abstract

One of the main issues that concerns mankind today is the problem of domestic waste and how it affects climate change, air pollution and the environment. In the present work the heat pollution from the waste disposal site is tracked at various time points. The waste disposal site near Vidin was selected for the purpose of the research. Optical satellite data from the Sentinel 2 multi-spectral instrument (MSI) and synthetic – aperture radar (SAR) data from the Sentinel 1 platform of the Copernicus program of the European Space Agency were used. The Landsat 5 -7 (ETM) and Landsat 8 (OLI / TIRS) sensors were used to calculate the surface thermal pollution of the waste disposal sites. Orthogonalization of satellite imagery was made to trace the dynamics of the main components of the Earth's surface - vegetation, moisture and soil. On this basis, a correlation is made to trace the link between the different components of the Earth's surface at different time points. Climate data on average air temperature, evapotranspiration, radiation and rainfall was used and a comparative analysis of surface temperature from landfill and climatic data was made.
