Snow and Glacier Hydrology Ice Core Studies Stable Isotopes

About

A post graduate in Environment Management from Forest Research Institute, Dehradun. I am currently pursuing research on “Snow and Shallow Ice Cores from Himalayan Glaciers & Isotope Hydrology”. I have vast experience of working in tough terrains like Antarctica, various glaciers of Himalayan region (Chorabari, Dokriani, Gangotri, Jaundar, Tilku, Jhajju) along with working in labs with conditions of (-)20°C. I have worked on instruments like, IC, SEM/EDS, Aethalometer, Sun Photometers, SOx, NOx, CO analysers, HVAS. I was a Student Participant in the 28th Indian Scientific Expedition to Antarctica (InSEA), to study “Trifluoroacetate (TFA) in Antarctic snow precipitation” and took Firn Core samples on a 200 km transect, at an interval of 10 km at both Larsemann Hills and Maitri. I have undergone extensive training in Ice Coring, Basic hydrology, Snow Physics and Avalanche Forecasting and Climate Change Modeling etc. With a passion for research and my subject, I look forward to serve the cause of preserving our natural resources (Glacier – freshwater) from Climate Change, which is one of the biggest issues the world faces at present.
