Monitoring Himalayan Glaciers

This documentary presents the findings of an innovative research conducted in the Nepal Himalayas. A team of international experts tries to understand the Himalayan water cycle using high-altitude measurements of snow and rain and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) over debris-covered glaciers. The study was conducted by Utrecht University (the Netherlands), the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ), and was partially supported by ICIMOD Innovation Fund
