Remote sensing estimates of glacier mass balances in the Himachal Pradesh (Western Himalaya, India)

E BERTHIER, Y ARNAUD, R KUMAR, S AHMAD, P WAGNON, P CHEVALLIER
2007 Remote Sensing of Environment  
To contribute to fill this gap, we use remote sensing data to monitor glacier elevation changes and mass balances in the Spiti/Lahaul region (32.2°N, 77.6°E, Himachal Pradesh, Western Himalaya, India).  ...  In the case of the benchmark Chhota Shigri glacier, a good agreement is found between our satellite observations and the mass balances measured on the field during hydrological years 2002-2003 and 2003  ...  The field work on Chhota Shigri glacier has been performed between 2002 and 2004 through a MOU signed between Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (GreatIce unit)-France and the Jawaharlal Nehru  ...

Overall recession and mass budget of Gangotri Glacier, Garhwal Himalayas, from 1965 to 2015 using remote sensing data

ATANU BHATTACHARYA, TOBIAS BOLCH, KRITI MUKHERJEE, TINO PIECZONKA, JAN KROPÁČEK, MANFRED F. BUCHROITHNER
2016 Journal of Glaciology  
The study reinforced the established fact that the glacier length change is a delayed response to climate change and, in addition, is affected by debris cover, whereas glacier mass balance is a more direct  ...  Therefore, it is recommended to study the glacier mass balance and not only the glacier extent, to conclude about a glacier's response to climate change.  ...  ASTER data were provided at no cost by NASA/ US Geological Survey under the umbrella of the Global Land Ice Measurements from Space (GLIMS) project.  ...

Glacier changes in the Garhwal Himalaya, India, from 1968 to 2006 based on remote sensing

Rakesh Bhambri, Tobias Bolch, Ravinder Kumar Chaujar, Subhash Chandra Kulshreshtha
2011 Journal of Glaciology  
A subset of glaciers was also mapped using Landsat TM images acquired in 1990. Glacier area decreased from 599.9 ± 15.6 km2 (1968) to 572.5 ± 18.0 km2 (2006), a loss of 4.6 ± 2.8%.  ...  Glacier outlines are mapped for the upper Bhagirathi and Saraswati/Alaknanda basins of the Garhwal Himalaya using Corona and Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) satellite  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We thank the Director of Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology for support for this work, and the Director, Snow and Avalanche Study Establishment (SASE), Dr Snehmani, and the Additional  ...
