Melting Glaciers Transform Alpine Landscape

Melting Glaciers Transform Alpine Landscape | Géographie : les dernières nouvelles de la toile. | Scoop.it
Climate change is dramatically altering the Swiss Alps, where hundreds of bodies of water are being created by melting glaciers. Though the lakes can attract tourists and even generate electricity, local residents also fear catastrophic tidal waves.

François Arnal's insight:

Le réchauffement climatique entraîne la fonte des glaciers alpins. Le reportage photo montre des glaciers suisses en décrue. Repérer sur les paysages les ombilics libérés de leurs glaces, les moraines latérales ou frontales, les lacs glaciaires barrés par des verrous fraîchement délestés par les glaces.

I wasn't planning on an ocean mapping portion of my class today, but this new development changes that.

This new wave of technology that is being used and introduced to society is amazing! I never thought that they could expand into the sea but it is definetly something that could be to the benefit of those who work in the field. Also, it is a great way to create lessons for children and adults on how to protect our oceans from waste. They get a glimpse as to what lies beneath the surface. Raising the bar everyday. Thank you for this article!

Thanks. The mere sight of this turtle creates a lot of ideas,and hopes for a better future. We have to open up the eyes of our youth to take care of all things alive.
