Multispectral satellite imagery engagement provides the landscape-morphological zoning. This procedure was carried out over Mariupol City and its vicinities. The research area was subdivided into elementary landscape elements in accordance with migration conditions. The structure-coordinate morphological terrain network was created. The ways of pollutants’ migration from industrial objects can be determined using remote sensing data. The main localities of matter accumulation within the city are the river valleys of Kal’mius and Kal’chyk. These areas are dangerous for human livelihood.
