Scientists and students of the Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology (WIHG) have found that the cold desert of Ladakh had once experienced large-scale floods that rose much above the present-day river level. The study concluded that in the scenario of global warming, when the higher Himalayas are expected to respond dramatically, flood frequency in Ladakh may increase, which may call for serious urban and rural planning.
