Velocity measurements on Engabreen, Norway
Abstract:Horizontal velocity measurements on the lower part of Engabreen, Norway, were made from repeat aerial photography. IMCORR software, which has been widely used to measure velocities from satellite images, was used to make the measurements. This is the first known successful use of IMCORR on aerial photographs. Supplementary horizontal velocity measurements were made from repeat measurements of stakes, giving velocities over different periods and also in areas that are too slow-moving to register a measurable velocity after only a few days.

- The Annals of Glaciology is a peer-reviewed, thematic journal published 2 to 4 times a year by the International Glaciological Society (IGS). Publication frequency is determined and volume/issue numbers assigned by the IGS Council on a year-to-year basis and with a lead time of 3 to 4 years. The Annals of Glaciology is included in the ISI Science Citation Index from volume 50, number 50 onwards.
Themes can be on any aspect of the study of snow and ice. Individual members can make a suggestion for a theme for an Annals issue to the Secretary General, who will forward it to the IGS Publications Committee. The IGS Publication Committee will make a recommendation for an individual themed Annals issue, together with a potential Annals Chief Editor for that issue, to IGS Council. The IGS Council will make the decision whether to proceed, taking into account the spread of topics and the overall capacity for publication of pages in Annals.
