عنوان مقاله [English]
This paper is an example of combination of GIS and remote sensing methods by scientists of Scott Institute of Polar Research in Cambridge, England during their study of ice covers in Nordaustlandet, Svalbard Archipelago in the north of Norway.
Vast, remote polar areas are usually studied by remote sensing methods. The above-mentioned project was implemented as a part of the European Space Agency’s program for study of ice caps and glaciers. Using GIS and whole range of remote sensing techniques, glaciological issues concerning different levels (different formations such as dry and wet snow or dry ice) on ice caps in an area in the north of Norway between latitudes of northern 74 to 81 degrees were studied.
