Consistent water and glacier mass balance measurements in Central Asia (CoWaG) – Eric Pohl

Numerical models for glacier hydrology rely on sound input data for calibration and validation. In particular when upscaling these models for regional-scale assessments of water availability in glacierised catchments, this is of great importance and includes data on various hydrological components, such as rain, snow, ice and permafrost. Understanding which […]

The first SPI Flagship Initiatives have been selected!

The first two SPI Flagship Initiatives have been selected for funding. These Swiss-led multi-annual programmes will combine polar science and technology projects from different disciplines. Dr. Francesca Pellicciotti (WSL) and Prof. Martin Hoelzle (University of Fribourg) will lead the project “From ice to microorganisms and humans: Toward an interdisciplinary understanding […]
