Gletscherrückgang im Ötztal

Glacier retreat in the Ötztal

  • Info

That climate change has drastic effects on alpine glaciers is well known. An animation illustrates the frighteningly strong glacial decline in the Ötztal. When comparing 3D models from the years 2009, 2015 and 2018, drastic length and volume losses are apparent. In some places, the glacier retreated more than 800m - melt water filled more than 2000 Olympic swimming pools.
