One of the key activities of adapting to climate change is the revitalization of post–industrial areas. A special case of such areas are post-mining areas in the mining of rock raw materials, which as a result of opencast mining have a completely different characteristics from the surrounding landscape. Therefore, there is a great need to undertake actions aimed at adapting post–mining areas to climate change. However, to properly design these activities, a method should be defined to assess the level of adaptation of post-mining land to climate change. For its needs, the Topographic Adaptation Index was developed and applied in this paper. In order to determine the level of adaptation to climate change in the studied mine, three models were created in which the course of the Topographic Adaptation Index was analysed depending on the variable spatial conditions.
