In this study, we aim to analyse the glacier dynamics of land-terminating glaciers in King George Island (Antarctica) between 1956 and 2018. Glacial fluctuations are estimated using space-borne remote sensing data (SPOT, Landsat, PlanetScope, Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2, WorldView-2 and TanDEM-X). The eastern sector of Warszawa Icefield witnessed continuous glacier retreat during 1979–2018 (surface loss of 30%). The decreases in the ice-covered areas of the Tower, Windy, Ecology, Baranowski and Sphinx glaciers were 70%, 31%, 25%, 25% and 21%, respectively, with their accumulation area ratios (AARs) exhibiting negative mass balances. The winter air temperature was cooler during the 1970s with warming trends in the 1980s and early 2000s followed by a cooling trend until the present day. However, the annual time series has shown high interannual variability in air temperature during these periods. We show that the AAR, dimensions, length, frontal elevation, maximum elevation, slope and changes in the terminus position influence the glacier response to climate change at various timescales. Furthermore, three geomorphic activity intensity zones and a complete paraglacial sequence are identified while contrasting the proglacial systems. Overall, subglacial deposits predominate and indicate that meltwater flows on the bed, producing wet-based thermal regimes.
