Talk by Dr. Rakesh Bhambri on 10.02.2021

You are kindly invited to join the talk on the rock-ice avalanche that happened in Uttarakhand last Sunday:

Cryospheric Hazard in the Nanda Devi Region, Uttarakhand

Time: Wednesday, February 10th, 5pm
Speaker: Dr. Rakesh Bhambri (Department of Geography, South Asia Institute, Heidelberg University)

Content: In the morning (~10.30 AM) of 7 February 2021, a major rock-ice avalanche detached (~5,600 m a.s.l.) near the Trisul Peak in the Nanda Devi massif. After this avalanche, a massive debris-flow-type flood occurred in the Rishi Ganga / Dhauliganga river, that caused the loss of life and destroyed infrastructure in the downstream areas including two hydropower plants, bridges and roads. We present an overview of this disaster based on available remote sensing images and ground observations collected by local reports.
