The development of technological progress provides more opportunities for indirect monitoring of changes in the environment. Remote sensing is one of The most accessible and reliable sources of information. In this work, we used satellite images from the Landsat family. The theoretical justification of the research question is given. The research methodology was developed. Collection and processing of satellite images for various time periods. A series of schematic maps based on remote sensing Data has been created. As a result of digitization of satellite images, 9 glacier contours were obtained by year. We determined the area of the Romantics glacier and found that it lost at least 60% of its original area. These studies were used to build a series of cartographic schemes that clearly show the reduction of the glacier area. It is concluded that the use of remote sensing allows you to solve problems, monitoring the object. The use of this method allows not only to save time for field work, but also material costs for expedition equipment and various equipment. This method can be tested on any objects.
