Time series of very high-resolution multiband satellite images can reveal changes in land cover moisture in Arctic and Subarctic tundra. Changes in the content of moisture in soil and vegetation in zones of engineering structures appear in jointly interpreted images shot at different times at optical and near-infrared bands. Very high-resolution satellite images of the airport area at Sabetta community (South-Tambey gas and condensate field, northeastern coast of the Yamal Peninsula) shot in 2003 and 2013 show land cover moisture changes at sites where the development interferes with the natural surface runoff.
