Contribution to High Asia Runoff from Ice & Snow (CHARIS)
The Contribution to High Asia Runoff from Ice and Snow (CHARIS) is an USAID supported project that aims to systematically assess the role that glaciers and seasonal snow play in the freshwater resources of High Asia. The project will provide critical regional-scale information for planning downstream irrigation, hydropower generation, and general consumption. The site details the methodology of the project and provides links to publications, posters, presentations, and news updates related to CHARIS.
