Loss of glacier area was mostly observed below 5600ma.s.l. and was greater for clean-ice glaciers. The equilibrium-line altitude has shifted upward from 5170110ma.s.l. to 5350150ma.s.l. in the years 1980–2010.

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
Explore cryosphere-related science applications.
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.
In the Everest region, Nepal, ground-based monitoring programmes were started on the debris-free Mera Glacier in 2007 and on the small Pokalde Glacier in 2009. These glaciers lie on the southern flank of the central Himalaya under the direct
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)...
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...
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 mountains, permafrost stabilizes rock slopes, moraines and debris-covered slopes. For instance, moraines consist of loose sediment often held together by permafrost. When permafrost thaws, slopes become more vulnerable to erosion. Debris and
