Abstract

Multispectral satellite data represent the primary data source for spaceborne glacier mapping and monitoring, and remote-sensing studies have generated significant results regarding global glacier observations and understandings. In this chapter we provide an overview of the use of multispectral data and the methods typically applied in glacier studies. Besides multispectral techniques based on the visible and near-infrared section and the shortwave infrared section of the spectrum, we also briefly discuss methods for analyzing thermal and radar data, with special emphasis on the mapping of debris-covered glacier ice. A further focus is on spectral change detection techniques applied to multitemporal data, with special attention to a novel image-differencing technique. Then we provide an overview of satellite image–based measurement of glacier flow. Finally, we offer a suggestion for a new combination of glacier observations to be made by both multispectral and radar/microwave remote-sensing sensors.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
