Marmolada winter campaign with GPR

Alpine glaciers are suffering the climate change. RSLab in collaboration with the Risk Prevention and Cue Service and the Geological Service of the Province of Trento and thanks to the support of the Helicopter Unit of the Permanent Fire Brigade of Trento,  is conducting a campaign of measurements on the Marmolada glacier with a Ground Penetrating Radar to characterize the glacier bedrock and study the possibility to identify accumulation of water at the interface between ice and rocks as well as the presence of water in the ice column. After two series of measurements with high temperatures in the Summer 2023, in the past days we acquired data in winter thermal conditions with snow covering the glacier.

Some pictures and videos of the glacier during the campaign as well as some examples of media coverage can be found below.
