A new blog and updates..

1. The STH blog is now over 2 years old and has now become HUGE and maybe a little intimidating. In order to separate STH activities and other miscellaneous information from landslides, a new blog meant only to be a database for landslides in this region has been opened here . So whereas much of the information about STH will remain in this blog, the facts and figures about landslides will be available at the new blog.
2. STH has now acquired 2 automatic rainfall gauges (ARGs) and a Garmin GPS hand held device.The ARGs will now be positioned at Kalimpong and Kurseong and together with the one already available at Darjeeling, we will be able to maintain a daily and accurate record of rainfall in the 3 towns of the district. Also our the landslide database will now contain GPS data.
