The price of the OPEC basket of 13 crudes closed trade on Thursday at $41.s college in Janakpuri, scientists at the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) have said.Home to 9575 glaciers (as per a Geological Survey of India inventory) the Himalayas are considered to have the largest concentration of glaciers outside the Polar regions Snow and melt water from the glaciers is the major source of water for the large river basins the Indus and the Ganges The Bhilangna basin is bounded by the Bhagirati group of glaciers in north and west and the Mandakini group of glaciers in east The basin supports 33 glaciers of which Khatling is the largest The water melt from Khatling and its tributary glaciers in the basin contribute to the source of Bhilangna river — the southernmost tributary of the Bhagirathi The ISRO scientists found that this main glacier had receded 4340 meters since 1965 and had fragmented into multiple valley glaciers resulting in the total loss of 10 per cent of glacier area Glacier status in Bhilangna basin was assessed from high resolution imageries obtained in 1965 by the Corona satellite of the United States and comparing these with photos taken in 2014 by ISRO’s Cartosat satellite Additionally data from the Linear Imaging Self-Scanning Sensor of ISRO’s Resourcesat-2 satellite launched in 2016 were also used for the analysis “All the glaciers in the basin show significant recession from 1965 to 2014” Babu Govindha Raj ISRO scientist and lead author of the report published in the open access publication “Geomatics Natural Hazards and Risk 2017” told this correspondent “However recession of the Khatling glacier from 1965 to 2014 is alarming in comparison to that of neighbouring Bhagirathi and Mandakini group of glaciers in the basin” Raj added The satellite image interpretation and field evidence show that morphology and dynamics of the Khatling glacier has a strong influence on its faster recession says the report “The glacier fragmentation creates smaller glaciers that are more prone to faster melting than the larger trunk glaciers” South-facing glaciers in the Indian Himalayas show more melting because they receive more solar radiation than those facing north due to their orientation “In 1965 the ablation area of Khatling trunk glacier orientation was towards the south This might have enhanced the incidence of solar radiation and resulted in faster melting of the glacier ice” the authors say “Furthermore the debris cover of the Khatling glacier is very thin in comparison to that of other glaciers in Bhilangna and this boosts the solar radiation received by the glacier resulting in more melting” According to the authors “The alarming retreat and fragmentation of valley glaciers into smaller glaciers may have profound impact on the future sustainability of Himalayan glaciers and water availability” The report says that Himalayan glaciers that have been in a state of retreat at various rates since 1960 “are showing reliable evidence of climate change However due to lack of meteorological observations and continuous glaciological data it is difficult to establish the relationship of climate change through glacier dynamics” For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related News Long-time Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) activist Trivendra Singh Rawat will take oath as the next

Lankan waters Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking his intervention in finding a permanent solution to the recurring mid-sea arrests "Such

Party leaders on Wednesday met Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal alleging that the party was being "singled out" and made to pay fine for "unauthorised occupation" of office premises on Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg in Delhi Delhi office of the Aam Aadmi Party PTI AAP leaders Sanjay Singh and Ashutosh met Baijal at Raj Niwas and said the party was slapped with a fine for ‘illegal’ occupation of office premises by the Public Works Department (PWD) despite having 66 MLAs in the 70-numbered Delhi Assembly The BJP has only four MLAs in the Assembly yet it has "seven offices" while the Congress has zero legislators but the party occupies "four offices" they told Baijal "There is no logic to this if AAP is being singled out when it has 66 MLAs in Delhi Assembly" they said The PWD had cited unauthorised occupation of the bungalow on the Deen Dayal Upadhyay (DDU) Marg by AAP as its office and slapped a fine of 27 lakh rupees on it The decision for allotment of the bungalow to AAP by the party-ruled government in Delhi was flagged by the Shunglu Committee In November 2015 the AAP government had approved a policy for land allotment to state parties The Kejriwal government then alloted a bungalow to the AAP on Rouse Avenue the following year The bungalow was earlier alloted to Asim Ahmed Khan who was later sacked from the Delhi Cabinet over graft charges Present Lieutenant Governor had in April this year cancelled the allotment A notice was issued by the PWD after this to AAP national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for vacating the premises Another senior AAP

semi-finalist a player who had won only two matches at French Open before this year and a youngster who had never won a round in the main draw Regardless of what happens in the last three matches of the tournament we are assured a first-time Grand Slam winner Here’s a look at the four semi-finalists and their paths to the last-four Timea Bacsinszky (30) vs Jelena Ostapenko Head-to-head: First meeting Jelena Ostapenko and Timea Bacsinszky will meet for the first time in the French Open semi-finals AP Bacsinszky and Ostapenko share their birthdays on 8 June but that’s all that they have in common The first women’s semi-final will be a clash between two contrasting styles of plays and players Ostapenko who turns 20 on Thursday is an explosive aggressive baseliner She isn’t just a ball-striker she’s a ball-basher It’s always all-or-nothing for the young Latvian which also results in her erratic performances She is also known to be volatile and expressive on court and her heated on-court row with Naomi Broady in 2016 is carved in the tennis halls of infamy Ostapenko’s game is better suited for quick surfaces but under new coach Anabel Medina she has produced some tremendous results over the last two months on clay She has registered a 20-4 win loss-record on clay (including qualifiers and Internationals) which includes a finals run at Charleston and a semi-final appearance at Prague On her way to her maiden Grand Slam semi-final Ostapenko has beaten Rio Olympics gold-medallist Monica Puig former finalist Samantha Stosur and 11th seed Caroline Wozniacki What’s even more impressive is that she has hit 172 winners over five matches in the tournament so far Ostapenko has never won a tour-level title in her career so far and her only previous result in the French Open main draw was a first round loss The last player to have won his maiden career title at a Grand Slam was Guga Kuerten and he did that right here at the French Open on coincidentally the same day that Ostapenko was born (8 June 1997) If Ostapenko can be described as feisty her semi-final opponent Bacsinszky is almost demure in comparison While the 47th-ranked player relies on power Bacsinszky the 30th seed uses a combination of crafty angles and deft touches The red dirt might be Ostapenko’s least favourite surface but her Swiss opponent is quite at home on the courts of Roland Garros It was her love for this tournament that prompted her return to tennis after she had distanced herself from the sport and gone back to school to study hotel management It’s where she says the “magic” first happened for her Bacsinszky who turns 28 on Thursday reached the semi-finals here in 2015 where she led by a set and a break before succumbing to a tough loss to Serena Williams the eventual champion In 2016 she was knocked out in the quarter-finals by Kiki Bertens This year she will be hoping to improve her best result in Paris She has had a difficult season before the French Open failing to win more than two matches on the trot But the tide has turned in her favour over the last 10 days She breezed through her opening three rounds dropping only nine games in the process In the fourth round she brushed aside Venus Williams after dropping the opening set 5-7 In her quarter-final against home favourite Kristina Mladenovic the counter-puncher displayed tact and patience to win on a rain-interrupted day without losing a set It will be an intriguing first-time battle between the two players and only one of them will be celebrating a birthday bash Karolina Pliskova (2) vs Simona Halep (3) Head-to-head: Halep leads 4-1 Simona Halep leads the head-to-head against Karolina Pliskova 4-1 AP The second women’s semi-final between Pliskova and Halep isn’t just a clash for a shot at the title it could also decide the World No 1 ranking The second-seeded Pliskova needs just one more win to dethrone Angelique Kerber from atop the WTA rankings If Halep goes on to win her maiden Grand Slam title she will snatch the No 1 spot from Kerber come Monday This semi-final clash could prove to be a breakthrough one for both players; win this match and they would become heavy favourite for the title on Saturday No one seems to be more shocked at Pliskova making the semi-finals than the Czech player herself She came into Roland Garros with a miserable 4-4 record in the preceding tournaments on her least preferred surface Pliskova has admitted with brutal honesty that she has been playing far from her best tennis Her booming serve and powerful forehand have been largely ineffective yet she finds herself in the last-four Before this year she had won only two matches at Roland Garros; in 2017 she has won five straight rounds Pliskova has only defeated one seeded player — Caroline Garcia in the quarters — en route the semis but had two tricky matches against Ekaterina Alexandrova and Veronica Cepede Royg The 6’1 tall Czech’s serve and power-led game also offers a stark contrast to the diminutive Halep’s defensive grinding style suited perfectly for clay The semi-final will be their first meeting on the red dirt but it’s definitely advantage Halep Simona ‘Houdini’ Halep had a cloud of fitness concerns hanging over her after she twisted her ankle in the Rome final However after a successful claycourt season – Stuttgart semi-finals Madrid title and Rome final – Halep came in as the heavy favourite Halep hadn’t dropped a set till the quarters with wins over rising youngster Daria Kasatkina and another claycourt specialist Carla Suarez Navarro In her last-eight match against Elina Svitolina Halep was trailing 3-6 1-5 before she staged a miraculous escape saving one match point on her way Halep clinched 12 of the last 13 games of the match to seal her spot in the semi-finals in spectacular fashion Halep credited her new-found positive attitude on court for her recent performances which was spurred due to her coach Darren Cahill refusal to work with her after a terrible three-set loss at Miami With Cahill back in her box since Madrid she is poised to return to the final for a second time after 2014 Pliskova has produced spectacular clutch play when required the most but she will need her other weapons to click if she wants to stand a chance of defeating her Romanian opponent If Halep does go on to lift her first Grand Slam trophy she would make a worthy World No 1 New Delhi | Published: April 2 2014 12:58 am Related News Samajwadi Party candidate for Gautam Budh Nagar Narendra Bhati — who had infamously declared that he
