At an elevation of 5250 metres above sea level, a bamboo stake, about an arm’s length, stuck out oddly against the white backdrop of Yala glacier. It was one of the nine bamboo stakes installed by researchers from the International Centre for
This training covers theoretical glacier mass balance monitoring which is part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme and is funded by the Norwegian government .
Workshop on Geodetic Glacier Mass Balance Assessments
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
In the Everest region, Nepal, ground-based monitoring programmes were started on the debris-free Mera Glacier in 2007 and on the small Pokalde Glacier in 2009. These glaciers lie on the southern flank of the central Himalaya under the direct
Students learn glacier mass balance measurement
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is implementing the project ‘Monitoring and assessment of changes in glaciers, snow and glacio-hydrology in the Hindu Kush Himalayas with a special focus on strengthening the
Langtang Valley was one of the worst affected by the 7.8 and 7.3 magnitude quakes that hit Nepal on April 25, and 12 May 2015. As in many villages in Nepal, settlements in Langtang Valley suffered substantial to catastrophic damage.
Training on Glacier Mass Balance Measurements
Training on Glacier Mass Balance Measurements, Kathmandu, Nepal
The six expedition team members carried out annual glacier mass balance measurements, measured snow density, downloaded data and maintained the hydrological station.
Experts from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development’s (ICIMOD) Cryosphere Initiative and Department of Hydro Met Services (DHMS) in Bhutan carried out a joint field expedition to Bhutan’s benchmark glacier, Thana Glacier,
On 8 April 2016, four students in their final year of MS Research in Glaciology shared their thesis progress with cryosphere experts from ICIMOD. The students are enrolled in the MS Research in Glaciology program at Kathmandu University, which is
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 .

Participants learn geodetic approach
Glaciers in most regions around the globe are retreating due to ongoing climate change. But glaciers in the Karakoram region of the Indus River Basin have not seen any significant area or volume change in the past four decades. This phenomenon has
Frequently Asked Questions - resource on basic terminologies related to cryosphere.
The paper, written by an international team of researchers, presents the first detailed modelling study of all glaciers in the Dudh Koshi basin in the Everest region of Nepal. This blog post aims to provide a bit of background on modelling glaciers
computer, analyzing glacier mass balance data, working on figures and graphs which to the untrained eyes look rather like scribblings on a toddler’s drawing book. But to the trained eyes, these are
