Thana (Bhutan)

Located in the eastern Himalayas (28°01‘16.1”N 90°36‘36.6”E), RGI60-15.02578.

The sources available are: ASTER, COPDEM, AW3D30, DEM3, SRTM, NASADEM, MAPZEN and TanDEM-X.

Summary

  • Aster has a noisy glacier surface
  • SRTM is available for the entire High Mountain Asia
  • NASADEM shows noticeable differences to SRTM in steeper (often unglaciated areas) which are also present in e.g. ASTER. But the flatter/lower parts of the glacier look similar.
