Glaciers in Afghanistan serve as headwaters to the Amu Darya River basin and also contribute to the Indus River basin. Glaciers are concentrated in the central and north eastern parts of Afghanistan. The glaciers were mapped from Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) images from 2005 to 2007 using semi-automatic object based image classification method.
