Remote-Sensing Observation of Glaciers Towards Their Monitoring,
CONSIGLIO NAZIONALE DELLE RICERCHE MILAN (ITALY)
Pagination or Media Count:
The object of this work is to show how the application of pattern description and recognition techniques to remote-sensed data may help in overcoming the difficulties related to the present surveying methodologies, integrating traditional measurements. The data investigated are images from Landsat MSS concerning the Disgrazia group Central Alps at the end of ablation period in three different years. The radiance values of the four bands were compared with data from the Istituto Geografico Militare IGM maps at scale 125,000 and stereo aereal photographs. The analysis of different glaciers exposed to the sun, glacier borders and shaded areas allows the definition of the glacier identification program.
