Scatter-plots showing the key attributes of the seven surface types identified in this study. DN is digital number of the Sony NEX-5N calibrated RAW image. Deep and shallow supraglacial water is easily distinguishable because it has low reflectivity in the red band and forms a unique cluster in the feature space. Snow, clean ice, ice containing distributed impurities and cryoconite form another cluster and are distinguishable because they reflect different proportions of RGB visible wavelengths
