The State of Remote Sensing Capabilities of Cascading Hazards Over High Mountain Asia

Dalia Kirschbaum, C. Scott Watson, David R. Rounce, Dan H. Shugar, Jeffrey S. Kargel, Umesh K. Haritashya, Pukar Amatya, David Shean, Eric R. Anderson, Minjeong Jo
2019 Frontiers in Earth Science  
Given the limitations of in situ surveys in steep and often inaccessible terrain, remote sensing data are a valuable resource for better understanding and quantifying these processes.  ...  High Mountain Asia (HMA) is extremely vulnerable to cascading hazard processes given the tectonic, geomorphologic, and climatic setting of the region, particularly as it relates to glacial lakes.  ...  For instance, rock-ice avalanche runout length has been found to increase roughly 25% in glacial environments, compared to nonglacial environments (Evans and Clague, 1994; Deline, 2001) .  ...
