  1. 1. Aspects of Error Quantification and Evaluation in Digital Elevation Models for Glacier Surfaces

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Jip Jan van Zoonen; [2020]
    Keywords : Geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; Physical Geography; Digital Elevation Model; DEM; Glaciology; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Aspects of Error Quantification and Evaluation in Digital Elevation Models for Glacier Surfaces This study explores methods to quantify and evaluate error in digital elevation models (DEMs) built from remotely sensed elevation data of the Hintereisferner glacier. A special focus lies on glacier surfaces because glaciers are often inaccessible for field observations but at the same time prone to measurement errors. READ MORE
