Abstract

This paper describes efforts to use orbital synthetic aperture radar (SAR) aboard the Canadian satellite RADARSAT-1 to assess the glacier facies configuration and mass balance of Peyto Glacier for 1996. Specific recommendations are made regarding the interpretation of SAR imagery over typical late-summer glaciological zones of temperate alpine glaciers and the potential application of RADARSAT SAR for mass balance studies and climate change detection in general
