Research Area

1.Monitoring Himalayan Cryosphere/glaciers by integrated approach to study climate impact on glacier dynamics and hydrology     

  • Glacier dynamics including mass balance, glacier flow/ice fluxes , terminal fluctuation etc
  • Energy balance, degree day model, role of debris in ablation etc
  • Hydrological balance, runoff,  water budget, GLOFs  etc

2.Glaciological monitoring with limited in-situ approach in Svalbard, Arctic  for studying intra and inter annual variability of mass wastage of Arctic glaciers , Comparing climate-glacier inter relation of Arctic with Himalaya
