Title: 
AGU Press Briefing May 29th: Global Land Ice Measurements from Space. (Dobbin Glacier Zoom 2)
Instrument: 
Terra/ASTER
Description: 
A high resolution image from ASTER, shows the ice breaking off the Dobbin Glacier.
Abstract: 
ASTER images are being used in an ambitious international project to map the extent of the world's glaciers and the rate at which they are changing. High-resolution ASTER images make it possible to distinguish and track small features on glacier surfaces. Images presented by Rick Wessels from Arizona State University showing details of snow and ice of glaciers are contributing to the Global Land Ice Measurements from Space (GLIMS) project, a global consortium led by the U.S. Geological Survey.
