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
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 majestic Himalaya draws its name from snow. “Himalaya” is descriptive term in Sanskrit which translates to “abode of snow”. However, snow cover area is decreasing in Himalaya as it is the world over. Global warming is further
29 April-13 May 2012: Cryosphere Monitoring Project: research expedition to Langtang
On her desk, Gunjan Silwal is engrossed in her computer, analyzing glacier mass balance data, working on figures and graphs which to the untrained eyes look rather like scribblings on a toddler’s drawing book. But to the trained eyes, these are
Regional training on “Glacio-hydrological modelling using the SPHY model”
The E-bulletin contains News, events and publications from September to December 2014.
Students learn glacier mass balance measurement
Cryosphere e-bulletin is a quarterly issue. The purpose of the bulletin is to serve the updates and information of the cryosphere programme to partners, researchers, students, and public in timely manner.
In the Everest region, Nepal, ground-based monitoring programmes were started on the debris-free Mera Glacier in 2007 and on the small Pokalde Glacier in 2009. These glaciers lie on the southern flank of the central Himalaya under the direct
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.
Much of the water originates around the highest mountains on earth, a region often called “the third pole” because of its immense concentration of snow and ice, the largest outside the Arctic and Antarctic. Relying on a complex interplay of
