Samjwal Ratna Bajracharya, Remote Sensing Specialist at ICIMOD, was nominated for Prabal Janasewashree (IV) Award for his notable contribution to glacier research.
The objectives of the course were to provide hands on training in processing of satellite data using an integrated approach utilizing geo-spatial and ground based monitoring techniques to address climate change issues and to bring awareness of
Remote Sensing based Monitoring
A special thematic issue of the Annals of Glaciology has recently been published by Cambridge University Press. The thirty-eight open access papers, written by research teams from around the globe, cover different aspects of glaciological research

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.
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
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
