Further information:
"I ponder the concept of Solastalgia, a term coined by Australian Professor Glenn Albrecht, whose first article on the subject was published in 2005. Solastalgia describes a form of physic or existential distress caused by environmental change such as mining. As opposed to nostalgia it describes the melancholia or distress that is produced by environmental change impacting on people while they are directly connected to their home environment. It is exacerbated by a lack of control over the unfolding process of change." Julie Barratt (writing about the project, SLQ blog)
