+ 2022 disastrous year for Swiss glaciers

The great heat in Ticino in the second half of August as well as the warm September and October led to a strong retreat of glaciers between the end of summer and the beginning of autumn, the Ticino Office for Natural Hazards, Fire and Planning announced on Monday.

If the retreat of glaciers progresses at this rate, it must be expected that only a few isolated ice areas will remain of the Ticino glaciers in the next five to ten years.
