Record #101768:

Improved snow and glacier monitoring by the Landsat thematic mapper / Helmut Rott, G. Markl.

Title: Improved snow and glacier monitoring by the Landsat thematic mapper / Helmut Rott, G. Markl.
Author(s): Rott, Helmut.
Markl, G.
Date: 1989.
Publisher: [Noordwijk]: European Space Agency
Abstract: Significance of improvements were investigated. Digital methods were applied for snow mapping in two drainage basins in Austrian Alps using spectral ratioing of TM bands 3 and 5 for compensation of topographic effects. Algorithm was developed for estimating snow extent in partly cloud-covered scenes, based on altitude distribution of different surface classes in cloud-free areas. Accumulation and ablation areas of glaciers were derived from TM images at end of ablation seasons 1985 and 1986. Data compared with field measurements of glacier mass balance and with air photographs.
Notes:

Offprint: Proceedings of a Workshop on "Earthnet Pilot Project on Landsat Thematic Mapper Applications", held at Frascati, Italy in December 1987.
