The technique of large scale maps of Thermodynamic Index Ecosystem Health Disturbance (TIEHD) mapping was developed. The complex results of infrared-thermal and multispectral surveys carried out by remote sensing systems based on satellites of low spatial resolution (EOS (MODIS), NOAA (AVHRR)) and high spatial resolution (Landsat TM (ETM+), Terra (ASTER) were used for that. The preserved zone “Beriozovye Islands” (the Northern part of Russian portion of Gulf of Finland) and the territory around the new sea port Primorsk (shore of Karelian Isthmus) were chosen as test sites for the verification. These test sites were supplied by sets of detailed thematic maps of modern state of vegetation in scale 1: 50 000, as well as by retrospective map. The statistical analyses of TIEHD distribution in the frames of disturbed ecosystems was carried out. The solution that averaged TIEHD does not contradict to the standard legend of disturbed ecosystems was done. These results were the scientific bases of possibility to develop automated technique of disturbed ecosystem mapping.
