Rockglacier Inventory of the Ile and Kungöy Ranges of Northern Tien Shan with Indication of the State-of-activity

Strozzi, Tazio; Caduff, Rafael

Rockglaciers and other periglacial processes were mapped via visual analysis of differential SAR interferograms and satellite optical images (Google Satellite, Bing Aerial). Surface deformation rates of the rockglaciers were classified into different classes (i.e. 0-2 cm/year, 2-10 cm/year, 10-50 cm/year, 50-100 cm/year, >100 cm/year and undefined).
