Hot News from Cold Glacier Ice

Ice cores out of glaciers from the polar regions and the high alpine areas contain valuable information about the climate and atmosphere of the past, reaching as far back as hundreds of thousands of years.

Ice core research has revealed information that is of concern: emissions of nitrate, sulfate, lead, methane and carbon dioxide from domestic sources, industry, agriculture and transport can be traced even in the most remote polar and alpine regions.
