Our Research

The Alpine Glacier Project collects data on discharge, water temperature, electrical conductivity, dissolved oxygen, sediment content and pH over the summer melt season, from Findelen and Gorner Glaciers, Kanton Wallis, Switzerland. In addition to meltwater quality and quantity, the AGP has conducted research into climatic variation and glacier mass changes, the longevity of Alpine glaciers and changing hydrological regimes in high mountain basins. Over its 40 year history, AGP members have published research in many internationally circulated peer-reviewed scientific publications.
