Second visit to Kyzylsu
Members of research cluster 3, ‘Glaciers, Snow and Hydrology’, successfully completed their second visit to Kyzylsu since PAMIR started. This time, the joint Tajik-Swiss expedition team also included several artists, working on innovative Art-Science collaborations funded by PolARTS grants.
The weather provided much better working conditions than during the previous visit to the region, and the group was able to install a new meteorological station at almost 4000m a.s.l., to re-drill ablation stakes in the glacier ablation area as well as revisit many of the previously installed meterological and hydrological stations.
Members of the group also had a chance to visit Khorog (GBAO region) including the campus of the University of Central Asia which provided new opportunities for outreach and collaboration.
