Griesgletscher by deedee20382 Griesgletscher by deedee20382
We spent the night there, on a windy day of the beginning of September, at about 2400 meters (it was very cold, that's what I'm trying to say). The picture was taken in the evening before dinner. You can see my best friend and guide walking towards our MHW tent, with the Gries glacier in the background.

Griesgletscher is a small, easily accessible valley glacier southwest of Nufenenpass. The fact that it has few crevasses, in particular in the lower section, and its simple shape, made it an ideal target for research into ice movement, deformation and structures starting in the 1970ies. Since Griesgletscher covers a major part of the catchment area of Griessee, which is part of a hydroelectric power scheme, annual mass balance measurements are conducted. For more information: overview.

A glacier is a large, slow moving river of ice, formed from compacted layers of snow, that slowly deforms and flows in response to gravity. Glacier ice is the largest reservoir of fresh water on Earth, and second only to oceans as the largest reservoir of total water.

Don't ask me what I made with Photoshop... It was a mess. I'm still experimenting.
