The glacier breakdown in the Himalayas is estimated to have occurred last week that the snowfall in the mountain would not have been able to handle the rockmas under the glacier and would have fallen. However, scientists are not denying other reasons for the collapse of the glacier.
The director of Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology (WIHG), Kalanchad Sai, told the Ians that during the survey of the affected area, the sample collected by scientists is still under study which can give some more information in this regard.

During a special interaction with the Ians, the geophysics expert, Kalchand Sai, said that the glaciers, along with the picture of where it is broken, have come up with a picture of rock, silt, water, ice samples, which are studying the relationship, as there is a difference between the glacier’s ice, the snow and the snow in the valley.
He explained that the ice of the glacier is as hard as a rock, and the piece of ice that has been brought into the sample has rolled from the top to Taphavan, which has rounded its shape.
He said that in the coming days also, scientists will visit the spot and their study will continue.
The director of the WIHG said that a large glacier piece fell down from the catchment of the Ronthi Glacier Bank. The rock mass beneath him was very weak and he could not handle the weight of the glacier on top of it, so he fell down.
He said that there may have been some snowfall on the glacier as there was snowfall two to three days ago. Because of that, he reached the critical zone. “We estimate that the rockmas below its weight fell due to snowfall and then the hanging glacier on top broke down,” he said. ”
The glacier and its debris fell down on the Ronthi Gadre, and the jem snow began to move on the mountain of both ends of the Gadre, and the rock with snow and the nearby Jem Rishiganga River.
He said that Rishi has become a lake in the upper reaches of ganga and has also come up with a photograph of scientists.
In Uttarakhand, earthquake tremors were felt in several parts of North India on Friday following the horrific natural calamity that occurred last Sunday in the Rani area of the policy valley in Chamoli district.
When asked about the earthquake-like cause behind the glacier burst, Kalachand Sai said, “The vibrations of the land cause landslides, but the recent phenomenon is not being linked to the earthquake that though we are studying all its factors, however, a number of factors like excessive snowfall, weakening of the rockmas below and hanging glacier are being observed simultaneously. ”
On the question of human intervention behind the disaster in the mountain and the formation of various development projects, he said that when a project of development is taken up, its effects are studied before that.
On the question of such a threat to other glaciers in the Himalayas, he said that there is no data in this regard at present, but there is a need for continuous study. He, however, said that there are more than 10,000 glaciers in the Himalayas and there are more than 1,000 glaciers in Uttarakhand and there are different reasons for such natural events occurring in the Himalayas. For instance, there is a difference between the Kedarnath tragedy in 2013 and the recent Rishaiganga incident.
He said that in 2013, the cloud was cracked, while the glacier was broken in the recent incident.
