Das Extremjahr 2022, Kryosphärenbericht

Das Jahr 2021/22 geht in die Geschichte der Kryosphärenbeobachtung ein: Sehr wenig Schnee während des Winters, Rekordschmelze der Gletscher, und Maximaltemperaturen in den oberen Schichten des Permafrosts.

The glacier world at the foot of Piz Palü and Piz Bernina is still impressive even after record losses were recorded on Vadret Pers (Grisons).
