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 exacerbating
Twenty-three Myanmar government officials were trained on ‘Application of Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems for Mapping and Monitoring of Glacier’ 25 - 29 July 2016 in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar.
Bhutan becomes first regional country to benefit from MODIS Snow Cover data prepared by ICIMOD SERVIR-Himalaya
The snow cover area of Nepal was mapped using 8-day Level 3 global products generated using MODIS satellite data and made available by the National snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC)...
snow cover data is presented for 92 sub-basins from the 10 major river basins of the HKH. Users can view basin/sub-basin wise statistics of the snow cover for different elevation zones, slopes and aspects The snow cover maps can be displayed for
The snow cover area of Nepal was mapped using 8-day Level 3 global products generated using MODIS satellite data and made available by the National snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC).
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.
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.
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
Ecosystems provide a network of services to communities that help sustain livelihoods. Integration of earth observation data with GIS makes it possible to quantify the supplies and demands of ecosystem services and provide reliable data for
Researchers from ICIMOD’s Cryosphere Initiative, the University of Utrecht and Kathmandu University are conducting a research expedition to Langtang valley from 16 April to 4 May. The researchers will visit several sites to maintain automatic
information system (GIS) to map and monitor glaciers in the
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.
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
Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere – Snow and Glaciers
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
