My name is Pritam Chand Sharma and I am a Glaciologist, Geomorphologist and Geo-informatics expert. My research interests are mainly focus to investigate the glacier-climate interactions on different time scales which includes decadal to centennial and during Quaternary period. Specifically, my research interest is mainly to comprehend the response of glacier dynamics to changing climate and resulting contribution to regional water balance; to define the timing and extent of Quaternary Glaciation in the Himalayan region and its impact on landscape evolution; and to identify the regional vulnerabilities of triggering glacial hazards in context to reported climate warming in the Himalaya and propose adaptation strategies accordingly. In my research, I typically combine latest techniques of Geo-informatics (Advanced Remote Sensing, GIS and Digital Photogrammetry methods), Geo-statistics, Field Measurement, Laboratory Analysis, Computer or Mathematical Models, Social Sciences Techniques and Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) dating methods.
