Identification and monitoring of glacial lakes in the northern Tien-Shan, Kyrgyzstan
This PhD project focuses on the detection and the monitoring of glacial lakes and related hazards in high-mountain environments using Earth Observation (EO) data. The main objective is to better understand the dynamic of glacial zones and associated natural hazards (e.g., Glacial Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs) and slope instabilities), to assess the potential of glacial lakes to outburst and to evaluate their potential impact downstream.
