Stations Repair in Langthang Valley


Based on the observations of a rapid field visit in June, a team of scientists from ICIMOD will make its way into Langtang Valley 14 – 30 October 2015 to repair benchmark stations damaged by the Nepal Earthquake and subsequent avalanches. The team will visit five meteorological and three hydrological stations to make repairs and perform routine maintenance. Surveys of Langtang, Lirung and Morimoto glaciers will be made using UAVs. The team will also collect temperature and precipitation data from an array of sensors installed in the valley.
