  • This study reports on the glacial cover evolution of the Nevado Coropuna between 1955 and 2003, based on Peruvian topographic maps and satellite images taken from the Landsat 2 and 5 multispectral scanner (MSS), Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper (TM) and Landsat 7 (ETM+). The normalized difference snow index has been applied to these images to estimate the glacierized area of Coropuna. The satellite-based results show that the glacier area was 105 ± 16 km2 in 1975 (Landsat 2 MSS), which then reduced to… CONTINUE READING
