Glaciers – The “rivers of ice” in the Indian Himalayas are one of the important environmental and economic formation that gives service by releasing melted fresh water for the Northern and North-Eastern part of our country throughout the dry season. Glaciological studies conducted at a very high alti-tude and under adverse weather conditions such as in the highlands of the Him-alayas are difficult in the usual ways. As Glacier changes, especially the chang-es in mountain glaciers, are one of the most sensitive indicators of terrestrial climate change. Thereby the observations from the present day be a sign of that the gradual change in the global climatic conditions is a major cause of the nat-ural disasters which we are witnessing these days. This calls for an informative approach towards studying the dynamics of this huge river of slowly moving ice. Therefore, the monitoring of glacial changes has been the subject of much research interest. Thus, our project aims to monitor the various parameters like water temperature, surface temperature, humidity and water level by using GPS we are having the track of the movement of the Glacier and then connecting it to the IOT and then we are fetching the data away from site which are concerned towards the retreat of Siachen glacier by using renewable energy sources, since Glacier siachen is home for our Indian army, it’s been a subject of research to us.
