Record #195065:

The glaciology of the Russian High Arctic from Landsat Imagery / J.A. Dowdeswell, and 3 others.

Title: The glaciology of the Russian High Arctic from Landsat Imagery / J.A. Dowdeswell, and 3 others.
Author(s): Dowdeswell, J. A.
Date: 2010.
In: U.S. Geological Survey professional paper. (2010.), Vol. 1386-F (2010)
Abstract: Briefly describes what is known about glaciology of archipelagos and islands of Russian Arctic, and demonstrates utility of Landsat imagery for studying region's glaciers and ice caps. Discusses: ice-surface topography, particularly definition of ice divides and drainage basins; ice dynamics; and snow and ice facies and their implications for glacier mass balance. Describes floating ice shelves/tongues that produce largest icebergs of Eurasian Arctic. Identifies only small number of probably surging glaciers, in contrast to neighbouring Svalbard. Suggests that small ice caps are likely to be in negative mass balance in response to recent climate change. Identifies periods of year most favourable for acquiring suitable cloud-free imagery.
