11. Automated GIS-based approaches for mapping glacial landscapes

IGSNRR Supervisor: Professor Cheng-Zhi QIN(秦承志)

UNNC Supervisor: Dr Ping FU (School of Geographical Sciences)(傅平)


Geomorphic mapping has been widely used for reconstructing the extent and dynamics of paleo ice, including ice sheets and mountain glaciers. Current approaches to geomorphic mapping typically involves the manual digitisation of glacial landform features from digital elevation models and images which largely depends on human visual interpretation and is a time-consuming process. 

The PhD project aims to develop an automated GIS-based approach to delineating the main types of glacial landforms using topographic and remotely-sensed data. The method will be applied to the Himalaya region to aid the reconstruction and analysis of the paleo ice extent and patterns in this region. This region is a key site for paleoglaciology, but lacks detailed and systematic mapping results. The results will be compared with paleoglaciological studies in the other regions of the Tibetan Plateau, allowing for a detailed examination of the variations of glaciation patterns across the plateau.

    Informal inquiries may be addressed to Dr Ping FU (ping.fu@nottingham.edu.cn), and Prof Cheng-Zhi QIN (qincz@lreis.ac.cn), but formal applications should follow the instructions in ‘How to apply’ section below.
