Monitoring Glaciers at the Top of the world

11.14.2019, by
What impact does climate change have on Himalayan glaciers? Over the last ten years, an international team of scientists has studied the gradual evolution of glaciers in Nepal, a phenomenon that could threaten local populations. This year, part of the team will once again be on site to continue research and take measurements.

French scientists from the Institut des géosciences de l'environnement (CNRS/IRD/UGA/Grenoble INP) and the Laboratoire de géographie physique: environnements quaternaires et actuels (CNRS/Univ. Panthéon-Sorbonne/Univ. Paris-est Créteil Val-de-Marne/INRAP) are taking part in the project.
