The Symposium acts partly as final symposium of the inter-disciplinary TEMPS-project (The evolution of mountain permafrost in Switzerland) funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
The main objective of TEMPS and the above symposium is an improved understanding of the vulnerability of mountain regions to permafrost changes and to assess the current and future impacts on populated mountain regions such as the European Alps.
The 2-day symposium will include invited lectures on mountain permafrost research, the presentation of the main project results, and a specific practitioner's day (German/French) to strengthen the relation between science and practice.
All permafrost-interested practitioners and scientists are cordially invited to join the symposium.
