"Einstein" on the Plaine Morte glacier 

A team from the science TV programme "Einstein" accompanied researchers of the National Research Programme "Sustainable Water Management" (NRP 61) during a water tracing experiment on the Plaine Morte glacier above Crans-Montana (VS). The programme will go on air on Thursday, 1st September on SF1.

The water tracing experiment is part of the research project "Water management in times of scarcity and climate change" of NRP 61. It aims to show where the melt water of the Plaine Morte glacier flows and determine who benefit from this water and to what extent. The results will help to refine the hydrologic balance analysis of the region.
