Event details

In the beautiful forests of the Upper Engadine, the trees are mostly upright and are therefore actually nothing special. They're just soothingly beautiful. But what if they are about 30 m below the water surface of a lake? Then it's not exactly scary, but puzzling. Dating of upright underwater trees in Lake Sils and Lake Silvaplana raises the question of the history of these lakes anew. Significant, multi-phase movements with serious consequences for the landscape have taken place here. The real causes of these processes are still a mystery. The geologist Christian Schluechter takes us on a journey of discovery.
