Researchers Develop Glacier Monitoring Tool Using Optical Fibers

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Swiss National Science Foundation professor Fabian Walter has come up with a new glacier monitoring tool in the form of optical fibers. The fibers are capable of monitoring entire glaciers. Due to seismometers’ difficulty being installed in glacial areas, seismic monitoring coverage of glaciers is inconsistent. In a recent study, Walter demonstrated that it is also possible to monitor glaciers using optical fibers. Not only are the fibers easier to install than seismometers, but they also offer more measuring points. These fibers represent a way of extending seismic monitoring...Read full article
