The International workshop on Climate Change and Extreme Events in the Himalayan region captures a three day program of presentations, panel discussions and interactive dialogues, which will take place from 18-20 April, 2019 at the Indian Institute of Technology Mandi, Himachal Pradesh. This workshop aims at understanding the effects of climate change, melting of glaciers, increased frequency of extreme events, atmospheric pollution, pollution due to crop residue burning on Himalayan region and applications of remote sensing. The uncertainties in environment have led to many extreme events for instance, glacial lake outbursts, earthquakes and rock/landslides, which can be mapped and monitored regularly using satellites. This workshop aims to provide a platform for Scientists, Academicians, Researchers and Scholars from various national and international institutes to gather and share knowledge for the overall goal of working towards capacity building in the field of earth sciences.
