A team of atmospheric scientists, responding to a request from the Home Ministry, set up an office at the Nepal Army hangar to support rescue and relief flight planning. Using satellite remote sensing and GIS technology, ICIMOD helped to identify
As a result of the efforts of the ICIMOD team, flight preparation times were significantly reduced and the reliability of reaching destinations increased, thereby increasing the number of successful flights per helicopter per day.
The ICIMOD team brought in Google Earth on big screens, helped find destinations, helped identify and evaluate destination landing sites for different helicopters, mapped potential flight paths, and provided elevation information to calculate load
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.
The spate of deadly disasters in the past 10 years stands testimony to the region’s vulnerability, especially that of isolated and often impoverished mountain communities.
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...
The 2015 Gorkha earthquake and its repeated aftershocks not only triggered thousands of landslides, but also weakened the soil and destabilized Nepal’s steep slopes. The 2015 monsoon was anticipated to further weaken the slopes and trigger
In the aftermath of the magnitude 7.8 earthquake that hit Nepal on 25 April 2015, ICIMOD has been using its resources and expertise to support relief efforts.
