Sediments from a lake in Switzerland reveal that ancient Romans triggered dead zones caused by the runoff of nutrients. Sound familiar?
High-resolution radar images from Switzerland’s experimental test site show that snow temperature is a key factor in classifying avalanche behavior.
A field study in the Swiss Alps showed considerable spatial and temporal variability in forest air and surface temperatures, with implications for snowmelt models.
A retired professor devises a plan and evaluates the cost of saving one town’s signature glacier from climate change.
A long-term study in Switzerland reveals the promise of a new method to determine isotopic composition of the potent greenhouse gas.
Mountain rivers and streams actively reshape landscapes by eroding material from uplands and depositing it in lowlands. Scientists can now predict this transport in very steep streams.
A new study shows how groundwater influences river dynamics and channel pattern.
Scientists studying tiny glaciers in Switzerland created models to determine how the world's diminutive glaciers would fare under rising temperatures.
The effect of particle size on bedrock erosion rates adds complexity to modeling bedrock channel evolution.
