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.
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
Extreme heat conditions in South Asia are making the headlines for the second year in a row. The HI-AWARE project is currently studying this extreme heat and ways to cope with it in three major cities in South Asia; Delhi in India, Faisalabad in
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,
A research team from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and the Kathmandu University will be heading to Rikha Samba Glacier in Lower Mustang, Nepal to carry out annual data collection activities.
A field visit to enhance understanding of ongoing International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) activities in Pakistan through exposure of policy makers was made to pilot projects in Upper Indus Basin (UIB), Gilgit Baltistan

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
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
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
Much of the water originates around the highest mountains on earth, a region often called “the third pole” because of its immense concentration of snow and ice, the largest outside the Arctic and Antarctic. Relying on a complex interplay of
The way up to Rikha Samba is steep. Occasionally we encounter snow showers crossing over windy high passes, but always in high spirit.
There was a time when famers had to go to the agriculture office or listen to specific programmes – like JTA Ra Budhi Amai – aired on Radio Nepal for information related to agriculture. With recent technological advances, over 500 farmers in
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
2013 Monsoon Floods in Nepal and India: What happened and what could have been done?
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...
