Monitoring Approach

To develop and implement cryosphere monitoring activities in a sustained manner, activities under the Initiative are categorized into three main components:

  • Field-based observation and monitoring 
  • Remote sensing-based observations and monitoring
  • Modelling of cryosphere and related processes

Activities under these three components ensure an interdisciplinary approach to developing comprehensive assessments of cryosphere water resources, cryosphere related disaster risks, and future water availability scenarios.
