Satellite Image Atlas of Glaciers of the WorldBook - 1988-
Uses remotely sensed images, primarily from the Landsat 1, 2, and 3 series of spacecraft, to document, monitor, and study the glacierized regions of Europe. Images were acquired primarily during the middle to late 1970's. Covers the Austrian, Swiss, French and Italian Alps; the Pyrenees, Spain and France; Norway, and Sweden. The present areal distribution of glaciers was compared, where possible, with historical information about their past extent.
