Abstract (English):
The article covers the problem of soil degradation caused by industrial activity. The paper discusses the current levels of landscape and environmental changes on the territory of Kuzbass coal deposits. The author tries to analyze the dependence of the environmental situation in the Kemerovo region on the condition of soil that was disturbed by mining. It was found that the impact of coal mining enterprises leads to disruption of the existing dynamic equilibrium in the biosphere, at both regional and global level. The necessity to introduce strict environmental monitoring of soil cover and binding works to restore disturbed areas was demonstrated.
