Bewilligung eines neuen FAU Emerging Talents Initiative-Projektes: Past, Present and Future Glacier Evolution in the Tropical Andes

Peru (Thorsten Seehaus)

Within the framework of this project preparatory work for large temporal and spatial scale analysis of the glacier changes in the tropical will be carried out. A huge amount of historical aerial imager exists for the glaciated region in the Tropical Andes.A major task will be digitizing and the photogrammetric analysis of the historical aerial imagery, in order to proof its potential for long-term glacier mass balance computations.
