Although they correspond to an important fraction o f the total area of mountain glaciers (33000 km out of 546000 km), Himalayan glaciers and their mass balance are po orly sampled. For example, between 1977 and 1999, the av erage area surveyed each year on the field was 6.8 km only. No direct mass balance measurement is availa ble after 1999. To contribute to fill this gap, we use remote sensi ng data to monitor glacier elevation changes and mass balances in the Spiti/Lahaul regio n (32.2°N… CONTINUE READING
