Jharia coalfield (JCF) is a treasure trove of the best quality prime coking coal of the country. In the present paper, study reveals the coal fire propagation of JCF during the period from 1990 to 2006 with the help of Landsat-5 TM and Landsat-7 ETM+ band 6 data. The Landsat- 5 TM satellite thermal dataset acquired in the year 1990, 1994, 1996 and Landsat-7 ETM+ in 2006 were used to find out the lateral propagation. On the other side coal fire affected area has decreased during the said period confirmed by the field study.
