Over the last ten years, radiography by means of absorption of cosmic-ray muons (muography) has been estab- lished as a tool for volcano internal structure investigation. Meanwhile, muography has spread out to many other applications. The Eiger-mu project (2015–2019, University of Bern) represents one such development in the field of glaciology, where the high penetration power of muons can be exploited to precisely estimate the topography of the mountains hidden by overlying glaciers. Technological progress and prospects of muography in glaciology are reviewed in this chapter through the pilot experiments performed at the Aletsch and Eiger glaciers in Switzerland.
