AGP in Switzerland, July 2017

AGP members have just completed a short fieldwork expedition at Gornergletscher, Kanton Wallis, Switzerland. Channels of data including EC, discharge, reflectivity and stage continue to be collected.  In the below picture, Dr Neil Entwistle is seen negotiating the high mountain path above Grenzgletscher.

Field Season 42 – Underway!

The 42nd field season of the Alpine Glacier Project is underway with data being collected at Gornergletscher. We currently have 6 channels of data rolling in, collecting an array of climatological and hydrological data on the hour, every hour. Logging equipment will run for the entire melt season adding to the long series of data collected in Zermatt.

As always, thanks are extended to Grande Dixence and Hydro-Exploitation for their assistance.
