Many records indicate that the trend of rising temperatures is more significant in mountain regions than adjacent lowlands. Climate models also suggest that the future will bring greater temperature increase and more erratic precipitation.
By the end of the year, ICIMOD had repaired broken weather stations, replaced broken sensors and solar panels, and continued its scientific work by conducting surveys of surface height change of the debriscovered Langtang and Lirung glaciers.
The six expedition team members carried out annual glacier mass balance measurements, measured snow density, downloaded data and maintained the hydrological station.
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

Hydrological and meteorological equipment handed over for Nepal
Based on the observations of a rapid field visit in June, a team of scientists from ICIMOD will make its way into Langtang Valley 14 – 30 October 2015 to repair benchmark stations damaged by the Nepal Earthquake and subsequent avalanches...
Students and Professionals Trained on Glacier Hydrological Modelling through Cryosphere Monitoring Project
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
Know where our stations are.
Langtang-Lirung,Drapoche, Gangchhenpo and Naya 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
Water resources assessment and monitoring
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.
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
Big data. Small data. Spatial data. Socio-economic data. Time-series data. Data in the cloud. Data on the ground. No matter what data you collect or what field you work in, if you have data it will require analysis. This four-day training will
ICIMOD provided the flood outlook for various locations in Nepal to the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (DHM).
