Aerial Survey Of Glaciers In Uttarakhand’s Chamoli

Scientists took up an aerial survey on the glaciers near the Rishiganga river in Chamoli, Uttarakhand.

This was based on the information given by the villagers near Uttarakhand.

In February, a glacier burst happened at Joshimath in Chamoli district, which lead to a massive flood in the Dhauli Ganga river causing large-scale devastation. Around 50 bodies were recovered and hundreds were declared missing during this whole episode.

On April 23, another glacier burst incident also took place in Sumna, Neeti Valley near the India-China border in Chamoli district.
Scientists will be submitting the reports to the government soon.
