Project Title
Himalayan snow and glacier studies using Microwave remote sensing - Aspecial emphasis on mass of seasonal snow and Eastern Himalaya
About the project
Project focuses on the radar data utilization for the development of methodology/algorithms/models for monitoring snow volume and mass changes, which includes the development of scattering modelling in snowpack for density and depth inversion. Project also aims to produce spatial distribution of snow depth and snow volume, and to generate high resolution DEM and glacier velocity for predicting snow/glacier dynamical changes in North-Eastern Himalaya precisely.
