Water Related Effects of Changes in Glacier Mass Balance and River Runoff in Western Himalaya, India: Past, Present and Future
Water Related Effects of Changes in Glacier Mass Balance and River Runoff in Western Himalaya, India: Past, Present and Future - GLACINDIA
Main objectives: GLACINDIA promotes and expands ongoing collaboration between Indian and Norwegian scientists, strengthens already established research activities between the partners, and makes significant scientific contributions and added value to these on-going activities. Effective and targeted dissemination of the results to governmental agencies, stakeholders and the general public is highly prioritized. The project includes: (a) Integrated research utilizing field data and regional climate modelling on Indian glaciers and hydrological systems (b) arranging exchange visits (field trips and conferences/workshops/ meetings) of Indian and Norwegian scientists to the counterpart country, (c), funding of 2 post docs, and training of young scientists (knowledge transfer).
