Alpine eco-systems are sensitive to global temperature rise and have been a focus of climate change research. As resources of fresh water, the cryosphere as a whole, and glaciers in particular, have drawn much interest from the scientific community.

The use of remote sensing (RS) and geographic information systems (GIS) in mapping and monitoring glaciers can help professionals working in the Hindu Kush Himalaya gather data more efficiently while conducting research.
