Research Projects

Projects in the Cryosphere Research Group at the University of Fribourg centers on the dynamics and evolution of the mountain cryosphere (glacier, permafrost, snow) with emphasis on the interactions with atmospheric changes

Our approaches include both, measuring and modelling techniques, which we apply in remote, cold regions, including the Alps, Scandinavia, Andes, Central Asia, Himalayas, Antarctica, Svalbard and Greenland.

We study:
