ABSTRACT
The article presents the study which examined the glacier acceleration and elevation lowering at the James Ross Island and the Antarctic Peninsula following the collapse of the Prince Gustav Ice Shelf in the Antarctic Peninsula in 1995. In the study, the ice surface elevation changes obtained from the Röhss Glacier via the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) digital elevation models (DEM). The data obtained in the study include the surface elevation changes, glacier surface flow velocity and ice thickness.
