on a complex interplay of seasonal
engaged in cultivation of seasonal vegetables producing over 27,000 kg of different vegetables most of which is sold in local market. A household generally sells between 8-35 kg of different vegetables
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
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
Bhutan has received additional support in enhancing its flood forecasting capacities through developing Bhutan’s national flood forecasting services from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD). In collaboration with
The majestic Himalaya draws its name from snow. “Himalaya” is descriptive term in Sanskrit which translates to “abode of snow”. However, snow cover area is decreasing in Himalaya as it is the world over. Global warming is further
Experts from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development’s (ICIMOD) Cryosphere Initiative and Department of Hydro Met Services (DHMS) in Bhutan carried out a joint field expedition to Bhutan’s benchmark glacier, Thana Glacier,
The six expedition team members carried out annual glacier mass balance measurements, measured snow density, downloaded data and maintained the hydrological station.
The way up to Rikha Samba is steep. Occasionally we encounter snow showers crossing over windy high passes, but always in high spirit.
We made a UAV flight plan and launched the optical UAV flight twice to cover the debris part of the glacier. I was trained on how to make a flight plan, launch UAV, and monitor the progress of the flight through eMotion using area map and the flight
One of the biggest unknowns in how glaciers will respond to climate change are the meteorological conditions and melt rates at the glacier surface, and how these conditions relate to data from standard observation networks and/or climate reanalysis
When our HIAWARE research team visited the small Bihari village in early February, we found Chharki’s streets lined with bamboo cottages topped with thatched roofs. Outside, women and children loitered. Very few men were visible. The children,
A small team of ICIMOD researchers recently returned to earthquake-ravaged Langtang Valley to rebuild and maintain the network of hydrological and meteorological stations that was partly destroyed by the 25 April Gorkha tremors...
2013 Monsoon Floods in Nepal and India: What happened and what could have been done?
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
New technologies have helped to create a comprehensive crop monitoring system
