Timely and accurate mapping of floods is important for efficient and effective management of rescue and relief activities. It can help reduce loss and damage due to floods.
ICIMOD is pleased to announce a ground-breaking journal article “Assessment of permafrost distribution maps in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region using rock glaciers mapped in Google Earth” published in the prestigious journal The Cryosphere.
Floods are a major disaster in the Hindu Kush Himalaya during monsoon season. Timely and accurate mapping of floods is important for efficient and effective management of relief activities. It can help reduce loss and damage due to floods.
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.
This training aims to train relevant professionals from ICIMOD and selected partner institutions and SERVIR-hubs on sentinel satellite data analysis for various applications.

flight planning. Using satellite remote sensing and GIS technology, ICIMOD helped to identify and
A vast amount of data about the Koshi River Basin is now at your fingertips, even in the field from a mobile phone. It has long been a challenge for users working on transboundary issues to find reliable data that doesn’t stop at borders, which
2016 to discuss updates on mapping of significant sites along ‘Kailash Kora’, the outer walking route
maps illustrating village-level inundation have the potential to support BSDMA in several community-level risk reduction activities. Such information is crucial to the government’s smooth response to flood management as waters continue to
Japanese satellite receiving station for disaster response goes live!
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is exploring the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to better understand change processes of mountain glaciers, and use appropriate volume estimation methods for different
The map uses L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar-2 (PALSAR-2) images from Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
User Consultation Workshop on Rapid Response Mapping and Information System
On 25 April 2015 an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 struck Nepal near the historic town of Gorkha. The earthquake caused numerous landslides and triggered avalanches that caused widespread damage, although much less than what would be expected
The study of forest above-ground biomass (AGB) for estimating the carbon stock in each tree is important, as it is well established that the emission of carbon is the largest factor affecting today’s climate.
This research study developed methodologies for forest AGB estimation in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region using optical high-resolution (WorldView, GeoEye) and SAR (ALOS-1/2 PALSAR) remote-sensing data coupled with field measurements...
