The samples collected were kept frozen until they were brought down to a lower elevation and melted samples were filtered immediately. The deposition of snow collected in the filter which will be sent to the laboratory in Institute of Tibetan

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

We made a UAV flight plan and launched the optical UAV flight twice to cover the debris part of the glacier. I was trained on how to make a flight plan, launch UAV, and monitor the progress of the flight through eMotion using area map and the flight

Increasing precipitation and glacier melt keep Asia’s rivers flowing

Glaciers in the Everest region could lose over 90 percent of their mass by 2100, an ICIMOD team learned when researchers integrated field observations of ice thickness and glacier mass balance with remote sensing, weather station data, and

On 25 April 2015 an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 struck Nepal near the historic town of Gorkha. The earthquake caused numerous landslides and triggered avalanches that caused widespread damage, although much less than what would be expected

He pulled the string of the generator one more time, It did not move an inch. Not only was the machine stuck, so were we. Fieldwork is not like in the old days any more where a tape measure and notebook were enough. Now we bring drones (unmanned

Against the unparalleled backdrop of Everest and Nuptse, the late November sun warms the glaciologist slightly as he prepares for an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) survey flight...

The worldwide rapid response team, coordinated by ICIMOD, inventoried landslides and mapped dangerous obstructions such as landslide-dammed lakes and rivers, sharing the results quickly with the Government of Nepal and aid agencies and later with

Dr W.W. (Walter) Immerzeel has seventeen years of experience in geo-informatics, water resource management and climate change and is skilled in hydro-meteorological monitoring, the use of remote sensing, simulation models and spatial analysis and he

eBee UAV and Kathmandu University hexacopter on the Kirtipur cricket

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

Congratulations to the winners and honourable mentions of the IACS/IGS student presentation awards! The award for best oral presentation went to Mr. Philip Kraaijenbrink of the Utrecht University, for his presentation on

Scientists predict warmer and wetter Himalayas

Meteorological data is scarce in high-elevation environments, and detailed imagery and repeat digital elevation models of debris-covered glaciers have not been made publically available until now. The Cryosphere Initiative at the International
