The training is a regular annual activity conducted under the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme (CMP) of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD). It aims to build the capacities of national partners on the use of Remote
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.
A week-long training course on ‘Application of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems for Mapping and Monitoring of Glacier’ was conducted January 18th to 22nd at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD).

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
The six expedition team members carried out annual glacier mass balance measurements, measured snow density, downloaded data and maintained the hydrological station.
