Monitoring Himalayan glaciers using Unmanned Aerial Survey Systems

The International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is executing a cryospheric monitoring project in two glacierised catchments in Nepal. The project aims at building capacity of regional researchers in glacio-hydrological monitoring techniques. ICIMOD has asked HiView to assist them on how UASS may be used to augment the ongoing CMP project through monitoring the extent of glaciers and glacier lakes, the mass balance of debris covered tongues and surface velocities. HiView will execute this project together with researchers from ICIMOD over the next year.
