Tittel

Water Related Effects of Changes in Glacier Mass Balance and River Runoff in Western Himalaya, India: Past, Present and Future (GLACINDIA)

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

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). The main goal of GLACINDIA is to provide a science-based framework for integrated cryospheric research needed to fill the most critical knowledge gaps related to glacier mass balance and river runoff in the Indian part of the Himalayas.

GLACINDIA extends an existing partnership between Norway and India (TERI and Bjerknes Centre collaborative projects funded through: Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and RCN)  to target glacier studies with new collaborators: in Norway, India, United States, Germany, and France.The main goal of GLACINDIA is to provide a science-based framework for integrated cryospheric research needed to fill the most critical knowledge gaps related to glacier mass balance and river runoff in the Indian part of the Himalayas.
