Some Photogrammetric and Geodetic Aspects of Measurement of Glacier Surface Movement as Function of Time

  • Ron K. H. Adler (a1)

Abstract

The ice movement on the Byrd Glacier, Antarctica, was measured as function of time, on the basis of aerial photography. The method of aero-levelling strip triangulation with a minimum of geodetic control was applied. The methods and procedures were verified over Laufen-Bauma test area.

Résumé

Le mouvement de la surface du glacier Byrd, Antarctique a été mesuré en fonction du temps par photographie aérienne. La méthode d’aéronivellement par hande a été employée minimum de points avec le géodésiques de contrôle. Les méthodes et les procédés utilisés ont été vérifiés sur la région de contrôle de Laufen-Bauma en Suisse.

Zusammenfassung

Die Eisbewegung auf dem Byrd Gletscher in der Antarktis wurde mit Luftaufnahmen in.ihrem zeitlichen Ablauf gemessen. Die Aeronivellement-Streifentriangulationsmethode wurde angewendet, wobei Minimum von gegebenen Passpunkten zur Verfügung stand. Die angewandten Methoden und Verfahren wurden auf dem Prüffeld Laufen-Bauma in der Schweiz geprüft.
