Event details

Glaciers are a symbol of a healthy mountain world and a unique, natural «thermometer». They are constantly on the move and exploring them is both fascinating and enlightening. In his lecture, Matthias Huss shows how the Swiss glaciers are measured and how their changes in the past and future can be calculated and interpreted. Why are glaciers important to us? Why and how fast are they going back? How much glacier ice has Switzerland lost in the last few extreme years? What does the future hold and do we still have a chance of saving the "eternal" ice? With an easy-to-understand insight into current glaciological research, Matthias Huss illuminates the role of glaciers in times of climate change.
