#17 Helicopter-borne radar survey of Swiss glaciers completed

November 2019 - by Lasse Rabenstein, Lino Schmid and Melchior Grab, along with Andreas Bauder, Christoph Bärlocher and Lisbeth Langhammer

The retreating Swiss glaciers present many challenges for hydropower usage: What water reserves are available today and in the future and which glacier beds could serve as sites for new reservoirs after the glacier retreat? The thorough and complete measurement of the glacier volume and the topography of the glacier beds offers answers to these questions.
