We compared a geodetic map of the Triglav glacier from 1952 to a topographicalmap from 2001 made using photogrammetric calculations from helicopter photographsto calculate changes in thickness and volume. Over fifty years, the glacierthinned in some places by more than thirty-five meters, and its volume decreasedto one fiftieth of its size in 1952.
