Study of glaciers may contribute to the solution of some scientific problems which have become important recently. More accurate determination of the size and geometry of glaciers may result in a more accurate estimation of the potential fresh water reserves and of impacts of climatic changes. In valleys endangered by ice-slide the preventive measures can be better arranged after heaving investigated the glacier and the ice-covered rock surface. In certain cases the glaciers are proper analogies for other geologic structures. Thus, obtained information from studying the structure of ice can be used in the interpretation of other tectonic phenomena as well.
