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.
ICIMOD and partners of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme will conduct an expedition to Yala Glacier in the Langtang Valley, Rasuwa, Nepal, as part of the Cryosphere Initiative funded by the Government of Norway.

This training covers theoretical glacier mass balance monitoring which is part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme and is funded by the Norwegian government .
research expedition to Thana Glacier in Bhutan will be carried out from 27 August–26 September 2017. An expert from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) will join a team from the National Centre
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.
