Monitoring sub-seasonal glacier mass balances and glacier melt water contribution to the total river system for Central Asia
- Project duration: January 2021 - December 2022
- Project status: ongoing
- Funding: Direct Award Contracts (Province BZ funding / Project)
The objective of Snowline4DailyWater is to provide sub-seasonal monitoring of glacier response to climate change and the associated melt water release for glaciers in Central Asia. For this purpose, transient snowlines derived automatically from remote sensing images will be used as a proxy for glacier surface mass balances and an energy balance model will be employed to calculate the glacier meltwater contribution. The main project outputs will be related to the development of novel approaches based on multi-source satellite data integration to map snowlines and of an operational tool enabling sub-seasonal monitoring for individual glaciers and catchments, based on the aforementioned relation. This tool will help relevant policymakers and stakeholders to improve their water resource management with a cost-effective strategy to better cope with climate change related challenges.
