Deciphering and mitigating the effects of climate change on high mountain permafrost – Dr. Xavier BODIN

A few decades ago we discovered that high mountains are affected by permafrost, and, at the same time, that ’ground ice’ may constitute a natural concrete of many rock walls or debris accumulations covering the slopes. In the Alps, the warming of mountain permafrost is clearly documented in several boreholes, and related geomorphological processes, such as the increase of rock falls activity or the speed-up of rock glaciers flow, are thought to be a regional consequence of global warming. Though numerous anthropic activities are developping on permafrost itself (for instance, touristic facilities...) or downvalley, it is not yet well known where, when and how the ’emerging’ risks related to the degradation of permafrost may hit mountain territories. In this lecture, we will see how remote sensing techniques, as well as in situ measurements, long-term monitoring or modelling approaches help us to explore and better understand the state and evolution of mountain permafrost and the impacts on socio-environmental systems.


Summer Program in Mountain Studies June 17-28, 2019

Experts from a wide range of disciplines will offer a rich, interdisciplinary view of Alpine culture and environment, in this short program taught in the heart of the Alps. The course will also take you beyond the classroom and into the mountains in a series of field trips and case studies tied to the latest in current research. The first week will take participants to the Vercors range to learn fist-hand about economic policy and changing local cultural practices. The second week includes a two-day trip to Lautaret pass for a geological transect, to meet with UGA researchers and see the unique and beautiful botanical gardens.
