The use of Earth remote sensing data in the study of mountain glaciers (on the example of the Alibek glacier in Karachay-Cherkessia)

The article presents the results of studying the dynamics of changes in the Alibek glacier according to space images of different years. Methods for processing remote sensing data (ERS) of the Earth to determine the structural elements of the glacial surface are considered. The obtained data are compared with ground meteorological parameters.
