Bhutan carried out a joint field expedition to Bhutan’s benchmark glacier, Thana Glacier, 3-24

field work was merged with several other projects to make optimal use of field personnel and logistics. In addition to visiting the ICIMOD/KU/DHM meteorological and hydrological stations, we conducted maintenance on precipitation stations

Researchers from the Cryosphere Initiative of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) leave for Langtang Valley and Yala Glacier this spring for routine maintenance of meteorological stations, data collection, and mass

objectives of the field visit were to strengthen collaboration between various actors working in the Upper Indus Basin; develop a better understanding of the impact of climate change on the environment in Gilgit Baltistan; and explore options to

Farmer field schools on integrated plant nutrient systems

In September 2015, Department of Hydro-Met Services (DHMS) engineer Tshering Wangchuk led an eight-member team of geologists, foresters, GIS technicians and hydrologists to the glacial lakes and villages of Lunana Gewog. Accompanied by ten helpers

Fieldwork on glaciers is an integral part of the Cryosphere Initiative at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD). Researchers from the centre and partners in Bhutan and Nepal will once again head to the glaciers to

UIB Field Visit

Field missions

The University of Zurich and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research (SLF), Kathmandu University, and Tribhuvan University conducted a training at Kathmandu University

Permafrost Field Expedition to Yala, Langtang Valley, Nepal

In many parts of the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region, people live near permafrost or in areas potentially affected by changes in permafrost. Permafrost is ground material (rock or soil) at or below 0 degrees C for two or more years. The surface

This workshop aims to explore the uses of UAVs in glacier research and other possible applications related to (but not limited to) natural hazards and risks (landslide mapping, GLOF risk assessments), urban planning, road construction, animal

The Koshi River basin contains rich biodiversity and is a source of ecosystem services that sustain the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in China, India, and Nepal. The basin plays a key role in the irrigation of downstream areas and has

Scientists from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) carried out mass balance measurements on Yala Glacier as part of the larger spring field campaign in the Langtang Valley.

The team stayed 10 days on Changri Nup Glacier (21 November – 1 December), reading and installing ablation stakes between 5300 and 5500 m, installing a new meteorological station on the debris covered part of the glacier carrying out some GPR

Field enumerators trained

The key pilot interventions are to develop packages of practices and to demonstrate climate resilient technologies and practices focusing on climate change adaptation and livelihood improvement.
