School of Surveying Lecturer Dr Pascal Sirguey presented new results about the retreat of glaciers on Kilimanjaro at the AGU Fall Meeting 2013. This resulted from the creation of a new very high resolution digital elevation model from GeoEye-1 stereo imagery KILISoSDEM2012 recently documented in Survey Quarterly (December 2013). Results show that Credner Glacier could disappear by 2030. This work was featured on LiveScience.com and over 15 science websites.
