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.


ICIMOD Glacier Database Working Group meeting at ICIMOD

A workshop on ‘Glacier Monitoring in the Himalayas using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)’ was held at ICIMOD on 27 January 2015, followed by demonstrations of the SenseFly eBee UAV and Kathmandu University hexacopter on the Kirtipur cricket

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

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

SERVIR Applied Sciences Team Technical Training

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

Training on Debris-Covered Glaciers

The performance of glaciohydrological models which simulate catchment response to climate variability depends to a large degree on the data used to force the models.

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...

Training on Debris-Covered Glaciers

ICIMOD Researcher Recognized at the GEWEX Conference

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).

ICIMOD is pleased to announce a ground-breaking journal article “Assessment of permafrost distribution maps in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region using rock glaciers mapped in Google Earth” published in the prestigious journal The Cryosphere.
