Glaciers of the Himalaya contribute significantly in the processes linking atmosphere, biosphere and hydrosphere, thus need to be monitored in view of the climatic variations. In this direction, many studies have been carried out during the last two decades and satellite-based multispectral data have been used extensively for this purpose throughout the world.

This document contains the presentation by Rupal M. Brahmbhatt, A.V. Kulkarni, B.P. Rathore & et al on "Application of Remote sensing and GIS in glacier retreat: A case study of Warwan sub-basin, Chenab basin", presented at National Climate Research Conference, IIT Delhi, March 5-6, 2010.
