The results of the large glacier Shkhara degradation located in the river Enguri glacial basin of West Georgia using high-resolution satellite remote sensing (SRS) are presented. The possibilities of using satellite Landsat data for glacier research are discussed. For the effectiveness of the research, it is used in a complex way together with the SRS data of 2010, 2015 and 2020, expert knowledge and the materials of the catalogue of glaciers and topographic maps created in the 60s in the former Soviet Union are used. As a result of the statistical analysis of the obtained data, the degradation of the glacier of the Enguri River was studied.
