Training on Application of Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems for Mapping and Monitoring of Glaciers.
18 Jan 2016 - 22 Jan 2016, Conference Hall, ICIMOD
Alpine eco-systems are sensitive to global temperature rise and have been a focus of climate change research. As resources of fresh water, the cryosphere as a whole, and glaciers in particular, have drawn much interest from the scientific community.
15 Jan 2016 - 16 Jan 2016, Conference Hall, ICIMOD
Glacier hydrologists, glaciologists and other experts working in related fields at ICIMOD and its partner institutes work regularly at high altitudes (between 4,000 to 6,000 meters) to collect data on glacier mass balance, snow, weather and hydrological conditions in the region.

Big data. Small data. Spatial data. Socio-economic data. Time-series data. Data in the cloud. Data on the ground. No matter what data you collect or what field you work in, if you have data it will require analysis. This four-day training will introduce you to the open access software R, a powerful data analysis tool.
