Record #140807:

Using GIS for glacier volume calculations and topographic influence of the radiation balance. An example from Disko, West Greenland / Carsten A. Bøcker.

Title: Using GIS for glacier volume calculations and topographic influence of the radiation balance. An example from Disko, West Greenland / Carsten A. Bøcker.
Author(s): Bøcker, Carsten A.
Date: 1996.
In: Geografisk Tidsskrift. (1996.), Vol. 96 (1996)
Abstract: Paper shows some possibilities of GIS in Arctic geomorphology. It is used to simulate topography and volume of Pjetursson Glacier, Disko, West Greenland at different times in history. Volume shows good agreement with that from empiric formulae. Energy balance model is established in frame of raster-based GIS. Model is used to demonstrate significance of surrounding topography for components in energy balance.
