IMHE Mountain Remote Sensing and GIS Training Course in Nepal TEXT SIZE: A A A

Under the support of the CAS Program “Construction of scientific database about resource and environment of South Asian countries” and “Comparison study on monitoring typical mountain ecosystems of China and Nepal by remote sensing method”, Dr. SONG Mengqiang, ZHAO Wei, ZHANG Jianqiang and ZHANG Jifei from Institute of Mountain Hazards and Environment (IMHE) were invited by Prof. Padma Chandra Poudel to visit the Central Department (CDG) of Geography of Tribhuvan University (TU), Nepal from 18-19th Nov, 2014. A technical training course about mountain remote sensing and geographical information system was held during this visit for the students and faculties in CDG, TU.

Dr. ZHAO Wei, ZHANG Jianqiang and ZHANG Jifei provided the training courses for the topics related to theoretical basis of mountain remote sensing and mountain environmental monitoring using remote sensing method, mountain hazards interpretation from remote sensing, and spatial analysis of the settlement distribution in high mountain area respectively. A good interaction was built in the training between trainers and trainees, and they all think that the technical training is very helpful and it is beneficial to deepen the cooperation between IMHE and CDG. Meanwhile, they hope the similar training course will be continuously held by staffs from IMHE in the future.

After the training course, Dr. SONG Mengqiang and ZHAO Wei investigated the land cover and land use condition of the urban and country area in Kathmandu Valley accompanied by Prof. Sher from CDG. The field work helps them to understand the environmental and resource problem of Nepal. Meanwhile, they visited the joint laboratory accompanied by Prof. Poudel and others faculties in CDG and discussed the issues on the further cooperation.
