The cover image shows a close-up view of a Sentinel 2 (S2) scene (32TMS) acquired on 29 August 2015 over the European Alps with the debris-covered Breithornglacier in the Lau-terbrunnen Valley (Switzerland) to the left. The S2 image with its 10-m resolution resolves the issue of glacier crevasses, thus depicting glaciers much more realistically. Paul et al. (2016) have, among other glacier mapping analyses, investigated how automated glacier mapping with S2 performs compared to Landsat 8 when using the band ratio method. The glacier outlines resulting from the three band combinations are shown in the cover image. The study revealed that (a) the 15-m Landsat 8 pan band can also be used for glacier map-ping, providing outlines with a two times higher resolution than with the red band; (b) all methods provide similar glacier extents, but (c) the 30-m red/SWIR ratio gives slightly larger (5%) extents.
