In their research, members of the SEHAG research unit are investigating the manifestations of climate change in the Alps since the end of the „Little Ice Age“ and its consequences for water balance, vegetation and the shaping of landforms. Recently, Ben Marzeion and Florian Haas, project leaders of subprojects 1 (climate and glaciers) and 3 (geomorphological processes on hillslopes), respectively, were interviewed by the authors of the ARTE documentary series „42 – the answer to almost everything“.
Together with glaciologist Angelika Humbert (Alfred Wegener Institute), they explain the findings of science around the formation and properties of glaciers and their response to climate change. A good example of science communication, in our opinion!
The program can be viewed here in the ARTE media library.
