The three-fold action plan includes: (i) To establish flagship field station for carrying out high quality meteorological, hydrological, sediment transfer as well as mass balance and glacier dynamic studies to establish interlinkages between various forcing factors. (ii) Document and understand long-term glacier-climate interactions in the Himalaya through laboratory based, chronological
constrained studies on sediment records including ice-core (iii) To create manpower through training program in India and abroad to take up research in challenging areas of glaciers.
