Globally coal mine fire is a major problem, which endangers not only the valuable lives of miners, but also causes severe environmental pollution and economic losses to coal mining industry. The surface & subsurface features of coal mine fire areas can be detected by different techniques like thermo-compositional analysis supplemented with thermal sureveys. Determinations of temperature by thermometer or thermocouple are sued for its monitoring traditionally but infraed thermograph technique has a greater coverage area, high-efficient and higher precision temperature results. A large surface area can be scanned, presented in thermal & visual form in very short time. This paper depicts the basic principle, monitoring procedure of thermography and its application in Jharia coalfield (JCF) for assessment of coal mines fire and its extent threfore in coal bearing area to prepare its monitoring as well as control strategy. This approach would be usefue to generate data base for ground validation of spatial data acquired by the remote sensing.
