Disappearing glaciers - New study on meltwater in the Rhine
November 5, 2018
 - Especially during longer dry periods as in 2018, the importance of meltwater from the Alps is increasing. In a new study, the International Commission for the Hydrology of the Rhine Basin (CHR) has been investigating how the proportion of meltwater from snow and glaciers in the Rhine discharge is developing. This proportion is particularly high in low water periods.
