Abstract

Mountain glaciers in the Alps can provide detailed information on past climatic conditions. Regrettably, their persistence is currently threatened by the ongoing warming. This situation generates public concern and the need to recover and preserve ice cores before their stratigraphy is permanently compromised. This contribution reports on recent ice core drillings in the Eastern Alps implementing new approaches to directly link the climatic signal retained in the ice with the palaeo-environmental component of the ice.Pollen
