Record #152613:

Inferring glacier mass balance using RADARSAT: results from Peyto glacier, Canada / Michael Demuth, Alain Pietroniro.

Title: Inferring glacier mass balance using RADARSAT: results from Peyto glacier, Canada / Michael Demuth, Alain Pietroniro.
Author(s): Demuth, Michael.
Pietroniro, Alain.
Date: 1999.
In: Geografiska Annaler. Series A. Physical Geography. (1999.), Vol. 81A(4) (1999)
Abstract: In special issue on Methods of Mass Balance Measurements and Modelling. Reports on use of RADARSAT synthetic aperture radar (SAR) in mapping snow-line accumulation area for Peyto Glacier, Alberta, Canada. Though RADARSAT can distinguish between firn and bare ice facies, problems of accuracy, particularly in defining equilibrium-line altitude (ELA), are discussed in detail.
