Scientists from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) carried out mass balance measurements on Yala Glacier as part of the larger spring field campaign in the Langtang Valley.
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...
will organize a training on glacier monitoring in collaboration with its partners as part of the capacity-building component of the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) Cryosphere Monitoring
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.
explore the uses of UAVs in glacier research and other possible applications related to (but not limited to) natural hazards and risks (landslide mapping, GLOF risk assessments), urban planning, road construction, animal tracking,
Patrick Wagnon visited Mera Glacier in the Hinku-Hunku valley of eastern Nepal in November 2013. The visit was a bi-annual trip to assess the annual and seasonal Glacier-wide mass balance using the glaciological
workshop on permafrost and glaciers was held 15-16 September at Karakoram International University (KIU) in Gilgit, Pakistan. The Permafrost Special Project and Cryosphere Initiative of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain
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 training at
Permafrost Field Expedition to Yala, Langtang Valley, Nepal
models of debris-covered glaciers have not been made publically available until now. The Cryosphere Initiative at the International Centre
By the end of the year, ICIMOD had repaired broken weather stations, replaced broken sensors and solar panels, and continued its scientific work by conducting surveys of surface height change of the debriscovered Langtang and Lirung glaciers.
The worldwide rapid response team, coordinated by ICIMOD, inventoried landslides and mapped dangerous obstructions such as landslide-dammed lakes and rivers, sharing the results quickly with the Government of Nepal and aid agencies and later with

the biggest unknowns in how glaciers will respond to climate change are the meteorological conditions and melt rates at the glacier surface, and how these conditions relate to data from standard observation networks and/or climate reanalysis

My feet have long forgotten what it means to be dry. With every step I tread newly accumulated water in my shoes as we are climbing up the muddy nomad trail through a dense forest...
