Research and Training Expedition to Yala Glacier in Nepal Builds the Capacity of Partners and Students
The way up to Rikha Samba is steep. Occasionally we encounter snow showers crossing over windy high passes, but always in high spirit.
A four-day theoretical training on glacier mass balance monitoring was conducted from 25–28 October 2016 at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) headquarters in Kathmandu. This meeting was followed by field
