Twenty-one participants attended a four-day training “Introduction to Data Analysis with R” organised by the Cryosphere initiative of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) held at ICIMOD headquarters 12 January to
field campaign to Ngozumpa glacier in the Khumbu region of Nepal in the months of March and April 2016. The team will conduct
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 .
The six expedition team members carried out annual glacier mass balance measurements, measured snow density, downloaded data and maintained the hydrological station.
The use of remote sensing (RS) and geographic information systems (GIS) in mapping and monitoring glaciers can help professionals working in the Hindu Kush Himalaya gather data more efficiently while conducting research.
This training covers theoretical glacier mass balance monitoring which is part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme and is funded by the Norwegian government .
Mountain Legacy, a Nepal-based NGO, has announced that Peruvian engineer César Augusto Portocarrero Rodríguez will receive the 2017 Sir Edmund Hillary Mountain Legacy Medal at the Hotel Tibet International in Boudhanath, Kathmandu, on 11 December

In the mountains, permafrost stabilizes rock slopes, moraines and debris-covered slopes. For instance, moraines consist of loose sediment often held together by permafrost. When permafrost thaws, slopes become more vulnerable to erosion. Debris and

Kanga peaks surround Yala Glacier, a benchmark Glacier of Nepal and one of the most studied. Spanning 5170 to 5750 m above sea level (a.s.l), Yala is a plateau Glacier among its surrounding peaks. It looks

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.
