Proceedings of the training on identification of potentially dangerous glacial lakes based on remote sensing and geospatial techniques

  • ICIMOD
  • Summary

To enhance knowledge on glacial hazards such as glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs), the Strengthening Water Resources Management in Afghanistan (SWaRMA) Initiative organized a training on “Identification of potentially dangerous glacial lakes based on remote sensing and geospatial techniques” from 15–19 July 2019. Participants participated in a practical exercise on identifying all the fundamental parameters of a glacial lake and dam to identify potentially dangerous glacial lakes in the Kabul basin, Afghanistan, and place them under three different priority levels for GLOF risk reduction.
