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...
The Indus River Basin is shared by four countries Afghanistan, China, India, and Pakistan, with the largest portions of the basin lying in Pakistan (52%) and India (33%). The main river originates at Lake Ngangla Rinco on the Tibetan Plateau in the
field campaign to Ngozumpa glacier in the Khumbu region of Nepal in the months of March and April 2016. The team will conduct
(GIS) to map and monitor glaciers in the
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 and partners carry out an expedition to Yala Glacier in the Langtang Valley, Nepal, as part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme, which is part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme and is funded by the Norwegian government .
the message about climate change was rather grim. Unless we take action now, global temperature averages could rise above the 2 degree level set during
The six expedition team members carried out annual glacier mass balance measurements, measured snow density, downloaded data and maintained the hydrological station.
vulnerable to climate change. The high peaks of the Himalayas are a vast storehouse of water in frozen form, with the world’s greatest concentration of
ICIMOD and partners of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme will conduct an expedition to Yala Glacier in the Langtang Valley, Rasuwa, Nepal, as part of the Cryosphere Initiative funded by the Government of Norway.
an expedition to Rikha Samba Glacier in the Hidden Valley, Lower Mustang, Nepal, as a part of the Cryosphere Initiative funded by the Government of Norway.
This training covers theoretical glacier mass balance monitoring which is part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme and is funded by the Norwegian government .
I’m placing my foot carefully on a stable rock. This is definitely a terrain to break your ankle. Or, I could slide down with the loose rocks if I create a rock slide on these never ending slopes. When I look back, I see how two people make slow
research expedition to Thana Glacier in Bhutan will be carried out from 27 August–26 September 2017. An expert from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) will join a team from the National Centre
The use of remote sensing (RS) and geographic information systems (GIS) in mapping and monitoring glaciers can help professionals working in the Hindu Kush Himalaya gather data more efficiently while conducting research.
The samples collected were kept frozen until they were brought down to a lower elevation and melted samples were filtered immediately. The deposition of snow collected in the filter which will be sent to the laboratory in Institute of Tibetan
The workshop will focus on existing capabilities to model and assess these changes, mitigation and adaptability strategies in a rapidly changing cryosphere, eco-social sustainability, and the role of the cryosphere in the earth’s future.
A research team from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and the Kathmandu University will be heading to Rikha Samba Glacier in Lower Mustang, Nepal to carry out annual data collection activities.
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
