Researchers from ICIMOD’s Cryosphere Initiative, the University of Utrecht and Kathmandu University are conducting a research expedition to Langtang valley from 16 April to 4 May. The researchers will visit several sites to maintain automatic
The six expedition team members carried out annual glacier mass balance measurements, measured snow density, downloaded data and maintained the hydrological station.
The climate change phenomemnon is the greatest threats to the arctic and alpine zones. High-altitudes zones of the Himalayas are particularly susceptible to climate variability and have shown increase in warming, and perhaps sooner, than the rest of
Glaciers in most regions around the globe are retreating due to ongoing climate change. But glaciers in the Karakoram region of the Indus River Basin have not seen any significant area or volume change in the past four decades. This phenomenon has
ICIMOD is seeking a GIS Specialist in its Afghanistan Office to support MAIL’s GIS Unit.
The way up to Rikha Samba is steep. Occasionally we encounter snow showers crossing over windy high passes, but always in high spirit.
ICIMOD and partners from the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme, Kathmandu University, will conduct 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
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 International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) through its Cryosphere Initiative hosted the first International Glacier Symposium (IGS) in Kathmandu. The week-long event took place from 1 to 6 March, 2015...
Langtang Valley has been the focus of intense glaciological, meteorological, and hydrological fieldwork over the past four years as part of the Norwegian-supported cryosphere monitoring project. Twelve meteorological and hydrological stations
Many big rivers like the Indus, Ganges, and Brahmaputra originate from the snow and glacier covered high mountains, and have abundant seasonal and annual water supply. Despite this, mountain people living on the ridges and hill slopes have limited
Water generated in the high mountains of the Himalayas plays a critical role in the major rivers of Asia and in the lives of people that live there. A new mini-documentary produced by Science Media, in collaboration with scientists from Utrecht
New Studies: Indus River flow variability and trends
This training covers theoretical glacier mass balance monitoring which is part of the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme and is funded by the Norwegian government .
