This paper discusses climate-development linkages, with a focus on developing countries but also drawing lessons from the experiences of developed countries. Increases in weather and climate extremes leading to natural disasters have been observed in recent decades. Such events are impeding...
Space-based river monitoring can provide a systematic, global, timely and impartial way to monitor disastrous floods. This paper describes a methodology to use daily passive microwave observations to detect, map and size floods, both for the purposes of global humanitarian organizations and...
Monsoonal rainfall in the Himalaya dominates erosion and sediment transport through the fluvial system. In addition to the strong seasonal nature of the Indian summer monsoon, striking interannual variations in monsoonal strength characterize longer records. For example, during any given year,...
The best known conceptual tectonic model of the Himalayan Seismic Belt (HSB) suggests that the Basement Thrust Front (BTF) lies beneath the Main Central Thrust (MCT) with a prominent ‘ramp’. The ‘ramp’ is viewed as a geometrical asperity that accumulates the stress due to the Himalayan collision...
Seismicity in Himalayas is much in evidence. Historical records reveal that devastating earthquakes have been a regular feature of the entire Himalayan system. Besides providing knowledge of what happened in the past these historical records hold clues that might be of great significance for...
We used ALOS InSAR images to study land surface deformation over the Crandall Canyon mine in Utah, which collapsed on 6 August 2007 and killed six miners. The collapse was registered as a ML 3.9 seismic event. An InSAR image spanning the time of the collapse shows 25–30 cm surface subsidence...
