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
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
Knowledge Forum with Prof V. Ramanathan: The Extreme Vulnerability of the Himalayan-Tibetan Region to Global Warming and Air Pollution
The Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) is highly dynamic as there are many socioeconomic and environmental drivers of change at play, including climate change. The impacts of these changes challenge the resilience of natural and human capacities and
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), the Bangladesh Agricultural Research Council (BARC), and the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) organized a day-long consultation and user engagement
The northern region of Bangladesh has been facing increasing agricultural droughts which can lead to reduce the productivity of farming communities, especially where irrigation is not available. Climate change projections also suggest a future
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.
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.
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.
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
