My name is Pritam Chand Sharma and I’m a physical geographer with focus on environmental change and geo-informatics. I have experience of more than 5 years in different international/national organizations to handle and design various assignments on Climate Change studies and its impact on the glacial system, mountain ecosystem, geo-hazards and landscape evolution using a latest technique of Remote Sensing and GIS (Geo-informatics). I am carrying out interdisciplinary research in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi (India), which is building on my academic background, combines Physical Geography, Environmental Glaciology, Palaeo-environmental sciences, Geo-informatics, and Social Science techniques to address questions regarding the glacial dynamics at multiple time scales and its impact on the landscape evolution, geo-hazards and regional water balance in the glaciated basins of North-Western Himalaya. I am trained in Digital Photogrammetry, Lidar Remote sensing, field techniques, regional climate models, palaeo-climate science, optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating and numerical modeling to study the earth-surface processes. I can handle datasets from high resolution WorldView-2 to coarse scale time series and processing most of these datasets either in professional software like ArcGIS, Erdas, ENVI, Geomatica or open sources software GRASS GIS, QGIS, and R in a window (preferably) or Linux environment.
With this webpage, I want to share results and latest stuff related to above mentioned themes. I welcome to all to share their views and make interactive discussion on climate change science and its impact on mountain ecosystem and downstream areas.
