C014:
Glacier Monitoring From In-Situ and Remotely Sensed Observations





Session ID#: 24546

Session Description:
Glaciers and their changes provide valuable information related to climate, and can be important for water resources and potential hazards to humans.  Understanding glacial processes is key to assessing the sensitivity of glacier systems to changing climate. Large scale assessments of glacier health hinge upon comprehensive glacier inventories. Glaciers are monitored on different spatio-temporal scales, from extensive seasonal mass balance studies at selected glaciers to multi-decadal repeat inventories over entire mountain ranges or larger regions. Internationally coordinated glacier monitoring aims at combining in-situ measurement with remotely sensed data, and local process understanding with global coverage.  Bringing together studies from the tropics to polar regions as well as from different disciplines, this session includes presentations on both in-situ and remotely sensed monitoring of glaciers, and related uncertainty assessments.
