Italian Glacier Inventory
CATEGORY: Featured Maps
A new Glacier Inventory is an indispensable scientific and practical requirement in Italy due to the importance of evaluating the present glacier coverage and the recent changes driven by climate.
In fact, during the last decades the glacier shrinkage has been occurring at higher rates than in the recent past thus impacting on mountain landscape and asking for more detailed studies to evaluate glacier behavior and model glacier evolution.
This challenge was accepted by the University of Milan and the EvK2CNR Committee who are supported by Sanpellegrino Spa and are working to compile the new updated Italian Glacier Inventory in close cooperation with the Italian Glaciological Committee.
