Snow and Glacier Mapping

In a collaborative project with Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change, ISRO has carried out mapping of Himalayan glaciers covering Indus, Ganga and Brahmputra basins using Indian satellite data during 2004 to 2011. The study shows that there are 34,919 glaciers spread over 75,779 sq. km. glaciated area in the entire Himalaya. Further, ISRO has monitored the glacier advance and retreat of 2018 glaciers, across the Himalayan region using satellite data of 2000-2001 and 2010-2011.
