History of glaciers and the influence of climate
at the Gîte de St-Jean

Speaker : Luc Moreau, glaciologist (Alps, Greenland, Patagonia)

What luck to be in Switzerland and to be able to approach one of its 1400 glaciers. The ice that makes up these high-altitude giants is the result of a process of snow compression. This mass must last and remain present for generations to be considered a glacier. It must also show a dynamic function, flowing downstream under the effect of its weight. Let's get to know our glaciers in order to preserve water resources, hydroelectricity, the tourist economy, the harmony of Nature and the balance that sustains us!
