R&D activities on Climate Change :

  • With the support of Department of Science and Technology, Govt of India, long term monitoring of East Rathong glacier is going on from the year 2013. State Climate Change Cell is dedicated to work for baseline data of Glacier dynamics of East Rathong glacier, which is only benchmark glacier in Eastern Himalaya.

  • State Climate Change Cell is continuously monitoring the South Lhonak Lake from many years. After Scientific interventions in 2014, the State Climate change Cell also played a major role in Siphoning of South Lhonak Lake in the year 2016 as part of mitigation approach towards GLOFs.

  • As a part of project with Centre for Development and Advanced Computing (CDAC), Pune, the Climate Change Cell actively engaged for installation  of Lake monitoring and information System  (water level Sensor) at South Lhonak lake in September 2016. The sensor gives the water level of the lake and also monitor sudden fluctuation in water level. The Water Level Sensor is in experimental phase. The same type of sensor has also been installed at Kupup Lake, North Sikkim on May 2016.

  • State Climate Change Cell is also engaged impact of climate change on human health and particularly focusing on various climate sensitive diseases prevailing in the state. The baseline data has been acquired through Annual Report of 2013-2014 (Health Department, Sikkim) and Sikkim Health Information Bulletin 2014 from Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (PME) Division, Health Department, Sikkim.
