Cold Regions Research Centre
The Cold Region Research Centre
The Cold Regions Research Centre was established in 1987, evolving from a large multidisciplinary, research & training, project on snow & ice hydrology in the Karakoram Himalaya of Pakistan that was based in WLU’s geography department. While the Centre’s initial focus was on arctic & mountain glaciology & hydrology, since 1990 the scope & role of the Centre within the geography department & the university has broadened. Today the CRRC is a focus of cold regions (mountain & northern) research consulting on topics such as hydrology, climatology, glaciology, resource management, parks planning & biogeochemistry.
