MISSION


To understand the role and response of cryosphere in climate change through an integrated study on glaciology, biogeochemical processes and ice core records from Antarctic, Arctic and Himalayas

 

RESEARCH


We work towards understanding the modern biogeochemical and air to snow exchange processes and its past changes vis-à-vis the  climate system and its variability. The proxy parameters used include temporal variability of stable water isotopes, trace metal chemistry, ionic composition, dust particulates, and microbial components that are reliable indicators of environmental change. We strive to carry out interdisciplinary research in Antarctic, Arctic and Himalayan regions. To know more about the research projects, click here..
