73 Olson, Matthew HowardImpacts of Topographic Shading on Surface Energy Balance of High Mountain Asia GlaciersTopographic shading involves two components: shaded relief and cast shadowing. Shaded relief occurs from self-shadowing due to the slope and aspect of a given location; cast shadowing involves projecting shade from nearby terrain onto an adjacent surface. The combined effect of topographic shading p...Climate Change; Atmospheric sciences; Remote sensing2017
