Follow our researchers in the field (activated when a field expedition is ongoing). The field teams are usually out twice a year, from April to May and September to November.
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
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

Quest to unravel the cause of the Seti flash flood, 5 May 2012
A scientific paper on the July 2015 glacial lake outburst flood (GLOF) in Lemthang Tsho in Bhutan recommends regular monitoring of critical glacial lakes as a starting point for good risk management. The paper specifically recommends revisiting
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
Scientists from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) carried out mass balance measurements on Yala Glacier as part of the larger spring field campaign in the Langtang Valley.

ICIMOD Glacier Database Working Group meeting at ICIMOD
Ice volume estimates are crucial for assessing water reserves stored in glaciers. A variety of different methodologies exist but there is a lack of systematic comparative analysis thereof...
In the Hindu Kush Himalayan region, many people live near permafrost or in areas potentially affected by changes in permafrost. Permafrost is ground material at or below 0°C for two or more years. The near-surface layer above it thaws during the
On 25 April 2015 an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 struck Nepal near the historic town of Gorkha. The earthquake caused numerous landslides and triggered avalanches that caused widespread damage, although much less than what would be expected
Workshop on ICIMOD Glacier Database of 2011
Frequently Asked Questions - resource on basic terminologies related to cryosphere.
The ICIMOD glacier inventories of Nepal in 2001 and 2011 revealed an increase of 17 per cent in the number of glaciers while the area decreased by 21 per cent. However, the data sources of these two inventories differ...
