Scale-dependent analysis of satellite imagery for characterization of glacier surfaces in the Karakoram Himalaya
published at : Special issue. Application of remote sensing and GIS in geomorphology
This paper examines the large Batura Glacier in Pakistan to determine if spectral variation in satellite data can characterize supraglacial characteristics. Specifically, the spatial statistical structure of SPOT data was examined and compared with field observations of different glacier surfaces. The objectives were to determine if reflectance variation from glacier surfaces exhibits fractal response; and evaluate the utility of scale-dependent variation to characterize the structural features of the glacier caused by factors such as supraglacial lithology, ice movement, ablation, the collapse of subglacial tunnels, and supraglacial fluvialaction
