As of last week, we have began research dealing with glacier mapping and monitoring focuesed on a rock glacier in Kaunertal, Ötztal Alps, Austria. The work will be apart of the Master’s thesis of Jordan Bates, an Erasmus Mundus MSc. in Geopsatial Technologies student. Currently the rock glacier is being mapped with Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Terrestrial Laser Scanners (TLS) inorder to combine the two data collection means to supplement their individual strengths. The TLS data will provide a more precise measurement with LiDAR along with a view from underneath the face of the glacier and the UAS data will provide a better overall picture from the air with photogrammetry techniques from optically collected data. It is planned that joining these two datasets will create a more complete and accurate depiction of the glacier than more traditional methodologies. This data will then be compared to previous data collections to measure and track its movement.
