High Mountain Asia Gridded Glacier Thickness Change from Multi-Sensor DEMs V001

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

This data set contains gridded thickness changes for approximately 650 Himalayan glaciers between 1975 and 2000, and 1040 Himalayan glaciers between 2000 and 2016. The data were derived from KH-9 HEXAGON and ASTER digital elevation models (DEMs), by fitting robust linear trends to time series of elevation pixels over the glacier surfaces.
