Schnee, Gletscher, Permafrost

In der Schweiz gibt es viele einzigartige Messreihen zur Veränderung von Schnee, Gletschern und Permafrost. Die Expertenkommission für Kryosphärenmessnetze (EKK) betreut diese Messungen und hat die Aufgabe die Veränderungen der alpinen Kryosphäre langfristig zu dokumentieren. Dieses Portal zeigt und erklärt ausgewählte langjährige Messreihen zu Schnee, Gletschern und Permafrost.
