Landslide/Sedimentation Koshi basin Nepal floods disaster koshi India KDKH
Basin-scale hydrology and sediment dynamics of the Kosi river in the himalayan foreland

Hydrological and sediment transport characteristics for the Kosi basin, which covers parts of Nepal and India, were analysed to understand the spatiotemporal variability of the hydrology and sediment dynamics of the Kosi basin and its implications for flood hazard and sediment dynamics. The study revealed that ∼56% of the discharge at Chatara (where all major tributaries of the Kosi meet) is contributed from the western part of the basin even though this constitutes only 34% of the total basin area.

Landslides inventory and trans-boundary risk management in Koshi river basin, himalaya

Koshi River basin, which is a trans-boundary basin shared by China, Nepal and India, covers an area of about 71,500 km2. This study investigated the landslide locations in this basin by means of interpreting remote sensing images as well as field work. We could map 5904 landslides that are located within China and Nepal. Landslide caused different kinds of disasters including damage to public and private properties.

The study revealed that ∼56% of the discharge at Chatara (where all major tributaries of the Kosi meet) is contributed from the western part of the basin even though this constitutes only 34% of the total basin area. In contrast, the central and eastern parts of the basin constitute 57% and 8% of the basin area but contribute ∼38% and ∼16% of the discharge at Chatara, respectively.

Morphometric diversity of supply-limited and transport-limited river systems in the himalayan foreland

The Indo-Gangetic basin exhibits highly diverse hydro-geomorphic settings that influence the hydrology, sediment production, and transport rates of the rivers draining this region, and this, in turn, is manifested in morphometric diversity of river systems.

Landslide loss and damage in Sindhupalchok district, Nepal: Comparing income groups with implications for compensation and relief

Accurate wavefront aberration measurement are essential for next-generation Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) Lithography. During the past years several accurate interferometric techniques have been developed, but these techniques have limitation. In this work we discuss a different technique based on the Hartmann Wavefront Sensor that requires no interferometry. We present a mathematical model of this system and describe our experimental setup which demonstrates the feasibility and advantages in terms of dynamic range and accuracy compared to interferometric techniques.
