The temporal monitoringof any glacier is important for observing the effects of changing climate. This study reports the decadal changes in Siachen glacier. Analysis was carried out on decadal basis by processing and analyzing Landsat images from 1978 to 2013. Images were coregistered within Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) limit of 0.5 pixel. An object based classification approach was adopted to perform temporal semi-automated areal change detection. The glacier inventory of 1978 showed around 74976 ha of glacier area which further decreased by around 1302 ha in 2013 with a shift of 1.5 km in the snout position.
