Langtang-Lirung,Drapoche, Gangchhenpo and Naya Kanga peaks surround Yala Glacier, a benchmark glacier of Nepal and one of the most studied. Spanning 5170 to 5750 m above sea level (a.s.l), Yala is a plateau glacier among its surrounding peaks. It
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
Sweet adaptation to climate change in the Himalayas
A team of researchers from ICIMOD, Utrecht University, the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE), Norway, and the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (DHM), Nepal are on their way to Langtang Valley, Nepal for Hydrometeorology
At an elevation of 5250 metres above sea level, a bamboo stake, about an arm’s length, stuck out oddly against the white backdrop of Yala glacier. It was one of the nine bamboo stakes installed by researchers from the International Centre for
One of 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
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) 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
This year’s devastating rains have brought challenges to flood-ravaged communities in Bangladesh, Nepal and northern India, particularly to sanitation. However, a flood-resilient toilet being tested in North-Western Bihar could make sanitation
A scientific paper on the July 2015 glacial lake outburst flood (GLOF) in Lemthang Tsho in Bhutan recommends regular monitoring of critical glacial lakes as a starting point for good risk management. The paper specifically recommends revisiting
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.
The training is a regular annual activity conducted under the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme (CMP) of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD). It aims to build the capacities of national partners on the use of Remote
The University of Zurich and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research (SLF), Kathmandu University, and Tribhuvan University conducted a training at Kathmandu University
While in recent years we have been choking and coughing through ground-level air pollution, and Himalayan peaks have disappeared behind a regional haze, the larger picture of air pollution may be changing.
A training course titled “Application of Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for the Mapping and Monitoring of Glaciers” was organized in Afghanistan from 14-18 January 2017. The training was organized in response to the
New Studies Provide Insights on Glaciers in the Greater Himalayan Region
