Short summary
In spite of quite abundant literature focusing on fine debris deposition over snow of glacier accumulation areas, less attention has been paid to the ice of the glacier melting surface. Accordingly, we developed a method for estimating ice albedo from fine debris cover quantified by a semi-automatic method. Our procedure was tested on the surface of the Forni Glacier (Italian Alps), acquiring parallel data sets of in situ measurements of ice albedo and high-resolution images.
