The workshop will focus on existing capabilities to model and assess these changes, mitigation and adaptability strategies in a rapidly changing cryosphere, eco-social sustainability, and the role of the cryosphere in the earth’s future.
Symposium on the Cryosphere in a Changing Climate was held in Wellington, New Zealand, from 12 to 17 February 2017. The symposium brought together renowned glaciologists from around the world to discuss and share research findings on

The Indus River Basin is shared by four countries Afghanistan, China, India, and Pakistan, with the largest portions of the basin lying in Pakistan (52%) and India (33%). The main river originates at Lake Ngangla Rinco on the Tibetan Plateau in the

In September 2015, Department of Hydro-Met Services (DHMS) engineer Tshering Wangchuk led an eight-member team of geologists, foresters, GIS technicians and hydrologists to the glacial lakes and villages of Lunana Gewog. Accompanied by ten helpers
This conference aims to explore and assess the role of mountains in the Anthropocene, and to develop plausible visions for mountains in a future where unintended or unforeseen consequences of human activities may dominate natural processes.

Many records indicate that the trend of rising temperatures is more significant in mountain regions than adjacent lowlands. Climate models also suggest that the future will bring greater temperature increase and more erratic precipitation.
