Talk Programme on Air Pollution in Kathmandu Valley: Issues and Challenges
While in recent years we have been choking and coughing through ground-level air pollution, and Himalayan peaks have disappeared behind a regional haze, the larger picture of air pollution may be changing.
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is exploring the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to better understand change processes of mountain glaciers, and use appropriate volume estimation methods for different
Permafrost Field Expedition to Yala, Langtang Valley, Nepal
This training covers theoretical glacier mass balance monitoring which is part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme and is funded by the Norwegian government .
ICIMOD and partners carry out an expedition to Yala Glacier in the Langtang Valley, Nepal, as part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme, which is part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme and is funded by the Norwegian government .
ICIMOD responded by working with kiln owners to rebuild in ways that not only improve seismic strength, but can trim coal consumption by up to 30 per cent and reduce the emission of harmful pollutants.
A small team of ICIMOD researchers recently returned to earthquake-ravaged Langtang Valley to rebuild and maintain the network of hydrological and meteorological stations that was partly destroyed by the 25 April Gorkha tremors...
People in the region have taken a great interest in air pollution. The risks of air pollution affecting people may be the main reason for this increase in interest about air pollution in Kathmandu and the country at large.
(ICIMOD) leave for Langtang Valley and Yala Glacier this spring for routine maintenance of meteorological stations, data collection, and mass
The way up to Rikha Samba is steep. Occasionally we encounter snow showers crossing over windy high passes, but always in high spirit.
The 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
