  1. This study established a decadal correlation between meteorological observations (temperature and snowfall) and satellite-derived seasonal snow cover for a glacier catchment. The study area was classified into 10 elevation zones. The time period for…
  2. This study scrutinises the use of terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) to measure diameter at breast height (DBH) and tree height at individual tree species level. LiDAR point cloud scans are collected from uniformly defined control points. The result…
  3. This work provides an overview of various methods for estimating snow cover and properties in high mountains using remote sensing techniques involving microwaves. Satellite-based remote sensing with its characteristics such as synoptic view,…
  4. Supraglacial debris significantly hampers the mapping of glaciers using remote sensing data. A semi-automated approach for the mapping of debris-covered glacier was applied, which combined the inputs from thermal and optical remote sensing data and…
  5. This work provides an overview of various methods for estimating snow cover and properties in high mountains using remote sensing techniques involving microwaves. Satellite-based remote sensing with its characteristics such as synoptic view,…
  6. Updated and Accurate Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of snow covered and glaciated mountainous area is essential for many applications such as avalanche hazard and numerical modelling of mass movements or mapping of terrain changes. The best high…
  7. The present work evaluates the applicability of operational land imager (OLI) and thermal infrared sensor (TIRS) on-board Landsat 8 satellite. We demonstrate an algorithm for automated mapping of glacier facies and supraglacial debris using data…
  8. The present research study assesses the accuracy of the SRTM X band DEM with respect to high accuracy photogrammetric Digital Elevation Model (DEM) for parts of the Himalaya. The high resolution DEM was generated for Manali and nearby areas using…
  9. This study scrutinises the use of terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) to measure diameter at breast height (DBH) and tree height at individual tree species level. LiDAR point cloud scans are collected from uniformly defined control points. The result…
  10. The present research study assesses the accuracy of the SRTM X band DEM with respect to high accuracy photogrammetric Digital Elevation Model (DEM) for parts of the Himalaya. The high resolution DEM was generated for Manali and nearby areas using…
  11. Glacial lakes show a wide range of turbidity. Owing to this, the normalized difference water indices (NDWIs) as proposed by many researchers, do not give appropriate results in case of glacial lakes. In addition, the sub-pixel proportion of water…
  12. Updated and Accurate Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of snow covered and glaciated mountainous area is essential for many applications such as avalanche hazard and numerical modelling of mass movements or mapping of terrain changes. The best high…
