University of Cumbria Associate Professor Rich Johnson delivered a keynote presentation to the Royal Commonwealth Society (RCS), Bath & District Branch. Alongside placement graduates, he shared insights into the research team's expedition to the Indian Himalayan state of Uttarakhand earlier this year (2023). With Turing Scheme and RCS funding, and the partnership of the GB Pant National Institute of Himalayan Environment (GBP-NIHE), the research team explored flood history in the high-altitude Dhualiganga catchment (headwaters of the Ganges) in the Chamoli District, using documentary records and local community knowledge sources. This builds on over a decade of research, teaching, and placement activity in the Indian Himalaya.
