Invitation to the International Symposium on 'Glaciology in High Mountain Asia', International Glaciological Society and ICIMOD, Kathmandu, Nepal

Symposium topics include the following, and should be focused on studies in high mountain Asia:
  1. Past, present, and future glacier change (reconstructions, observations, projections)
  2. Observations and models of glacier dynamics (including glacier response times, and thickness and volume of ice)
  3. Glacier and snow melt processes (debris cover, supraglacial lakes, black carbon, etc.)
  4. Hydrology of glacierized catchments
  5. High-altitude meteorology, climate downscaling, and climatic change (ice core records, etc.)
  6. Glacial hazards (GLOFs, avalanches, mass movements)
  7. Permafrost studies (measurement, modeling, distribution)
  8. Impacts of cryospheric change (local and regional water resources, ecosystems, etc.)
