Ice volume data is the initial parameters for predicting glacier variation and sea-level change. Therefore, research on ice volume estimation has important theoretical and practical significance. Methods of estimating mountain glacier volume can be divided into the following categories: field survey, empirical formula method and physical analysis method. The principles, development status and existing problems of these methods were analyzed in this paper in order to provide reference for the future estimation and simulation of mountain glacier volume. Field survey has high accuracy, which is suitable for long-term monitoring small glaciers. Empirical formula method is simple and rapid, suitable for large regional or global ice volume estimation. Physical analysis method is relatively complex, but it is not necessary to have initial parameters. Air-borne glacier penetrating radar, UAV, ANN theory and other theoretical model provide new opportunities for estimating mountain glacier volume.

Key words: mountain glaciers, ice volume, estimation methods
