Full source code for the Fully Automated Supraglacial lake Tracking at Enhanced Resolution ("FASTER") algorithm.
Full source code for the Fully Automated Supraglacial lake Tracking at Enhanced Resolution ("FASTER") algorithm. The FASTER algorithm tracks changes to supraglacial lake area and volume from a series of Sentinel-2 (and Landsat 8) imagery, including automatic identification of rapid lake-drainage events. Code is written in MATLAB. The script "S2_L8_provenance.m" provides an overview of the scripts, including their main uses within the FASTER algorithm or associated analysis. Individual scripts are fully introduced and commented. Full details of the algorithm are provided in the paper available at the following location: https://doi.org/10.5194/tc-2018-56.
