made a UAV flight plan and launched the optical UAV flight twice to cover the debris part of the glacier. I was trained on how to make a flight plan, launch UAV, and monitor the progress of the flight through eMotion using area map and the flight
of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to better understand change processes of mountain glaciers, and use appropriate volume estimation methods for different types
aims to explore the uses of UAVs in glacier research and other possible applications related to (but not limited to) natural hazards and risks (landslide mapping, GLOF risk assessments), urban planning, road construction, animal tracking,
Forest biomass is the sum of the above ground living organic material contained in trees, which is expressed as dry weight per unit area. Forest carbon trading has gained attention in recent years, for which practical methods for estimating forest
Against the unparalleled backdrop of Everest and Nuptse, the late November sun warms the glaciologist slightly as he prepares for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) survey flight...
The field work was merged with several other projects to make optimal use of field personnel and logistics. In addition to visiting the ICIMOD/KU/DHM meteorological and hydrological stations, we conducted maintenance on precipitation stations
News - Cryosphere Initiative
Meteorological data is scarce in high-elevation environments, and detailed imagery and repeat digital elevation models of debris-covered glaciers have not been made publically available until now. The Cryosphere Initiative at the International
