Formation and future evolution of glacier lakes in Austria (FUTURELAKES)

At a glance


Glacier retreat is one of the most visible consequences of climate change and models suggest that temperature increase of 3°C in Austria will lead to glacier extents less than 20% of today's extent within the next century.

Information on future changes of the high alpine landscape is currently not available for the Austrian Alps. The interdisciplinary project FUTURELAKES aims at filling this research gap.
