  1. 1. Implications of a rapidly thinning ice-margin for annual moraine formation at Gornergletscher, Switzerland

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Geologiska institutionen

    Author : Lukas Rettig; [2020]
    Keywords : Recessional moraines; Ice-marginal processes; Glacier retreat; Glacial geomorphology; Glacial sedimentology; Alpine glaciers; Swiss Alps; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : This study examines genetic processes and climatological significance of annual moraine formation in the foreland of Gornergletscher, a large alpine-valley glacier located in the southern Swiss Alps. A particular focus is set on moraine ridges that have been forming between 2007 and 2019, a period when the glacier has been subject to accelerated retreat and pronounced frontal thinning. READ MORE

  4. 4. Direct multispectral photogrammetry for UAV-based snow depth measurements

    University essay from KTH/Geoinformatik

    Author : Kathrin Maier; [2019]
    Keywords : Unmanned Aerial Vehicles UAV ; snow depth; direct photogrammetry; multispectral imagery; cryosphere;

    Abstract : Due to the changing climate and inherent atypically occurring meteorological events in the Arctic regions, more accurate snow quality predictions are needed in order to support the Sámi reindeer herding communities in northern Sweden that struggle to adapt to the rapidly changing Arctic climate. Spatial snow depth distribution is a crucial parameter not only to assess snow quality but also for multiple environmental research and social land use purposes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Snow layer mapping by remote sensing from Unmanned Aerial Vehicles : A mixed method study of sensor applications for research in Arctic and Alpine environments

    University essay from KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Inst.)
