Historical variations in the extent of mountain glaciers give insight into natural and forced changes of these bellwethers of the climate. Because of the limited number of ground observations relative to the number of glaciers, it is useful to develop techniques that permit for the monitoring of glacier systems using satellite imagery. Here, we propose a new approach for identifying the glacier terminus over time from Landsat images. The proposed method permits for detecting inflection points… CONTINUE READING
