Using radars for atmospheric research
The focus of the training will be on the use of 30-meter elevation SRTM-2 datasets, which are freely and publicly available, and are extremely valuable for addressing critical issues impacted by Earth’s topography, including water flow, heavy
This training aims to train relevant professionals from ICIMOD and selected partner institutions and SERVIR-hubs on sentinel satellite data analysis for various applications.
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
A hazard is an agent that harms or damages life, health, property, or the environment. It can be either natural or attributable to an anthropogenic activity that results in imbalances in ecological cycles and ecosystems as a whole.
Using spaceborne SAR in synergy with other methods for forest above-ground biomass assessment in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan (HKH) Region
Timely and accurate mapping of floods is important for efficient and effective management of rescue and relief activities. It can help reduce loss and damage due to floods.
Cryosphere researchers from ICIMOD will join a team of scientists from institutes in Nepal and Europe for an extensive field campaign to Ngozumpa glacier in the Khumbu region of Nepal in the months of March and April 2016. The team will conduct
Bangladesh is one of the world
The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and its partners for the Cryosphere Monitoring Programme carried out an expedition to Rikha Samba Glacier located within the Hidden Valley of Lower Mustang in Nepal. The
ICIMOD took another step in improving the quality of hydrometeorological data collection that will contribute to reducing flood vulnerabilities in the Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) countries. In collaboration with the World Meteorological Organization
The study of forest above-ground biomass (AGB) for estimating the carbon stock in each tree is important, as it is well established that the emission of carbon is the largest factor affecting today’s climate.
This research study developed methodologies for forest AGB estimation in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region using optical high-resolution (WorldView, GeoEye) and SAR (ALOS-1/2 PALSAR) remote-sensing data coupled with field measurements...
Flood maps illustrating village-level inundation have the potential to support BSDMA in several community-level risk reduction activities. Such information is crucial to the government’s smooth response to flood management as waters continue to
