Monitoring & Assessment of Snow Cover in HKH

Snow constitutes an important component of the cryosphere and is characterised by high inter-annual, intra-annual, and seasonal variability. Snowmelt makes a significant contribution to the water budget in some of the major river systems of the Himalayas.

Study of snow trends is essential for understanding regional climate change and managing water resources. This application provide an interactive snow cover mapping environment with major basin and their sub-basins wise statistics which are important for the study of snow budget for agriculture, water-based industries, environment, land management, water supplies, and many others.
