ASTER Image Capture Disappearing Arctic Glaciers

July 14, 2020 ASTER image of the St. Patrick Bay Icecaps, Hazen Plateau, Ellesmere Island, Canada, shows that the icecaps have disappeared. Mapping of the icecaps’ extent using aerial photos, GPS, and ASTER images, from 1959 to present, documents their shrinking and eventual vanishing.

Scientists have been researching how Arctic glaciers responded to global warming as a result of significant temperature increases at the northern polar region?

A July 14, 2020 ASTER image of the St. Patrick Bay Icecaps, Hazen Plateau, Ellesmere Island, Canada, shows that the icecaps have disappeared. Mapping of the icecaps’ extent using aerial photos, GPS, and ASTER images, from 1959 to present, documents their shrinking and eventual vanishing.

Dr. Mark Sezerre (Director of NSIDC), said: “We’ve long known that as climate change takes hold, the effects would be especially pronounced in the Arctic. They’re the victims of human-caused warming that has occurred three times more rapidly in the Arctic than anywhere else.” Satellite data provide the most important method to monitor cryosphere changes on the Earth.
