New publication on debris cover evolution in Austria

January 11, 2021 geoadmin

We have a new paper out in Earth Surface Processes And Landforms on the changes of debris cover on glaciers in the Austria Alps. We used a threshold based approach to automatically map debris cover on Landsat images between 1996 and 2015. Our results indicate that debris cover increased by more than 10%, while glacier sizes decreased significantly. Read more are: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/esp.5065
