of climate and weather with the alpine cryosphere (snow, glaciers,
permafrost). I'm especially
interested in the distribution, variability, changes and trends of the
snow cover (Switzerland-Alps-Global). Long-term monitoring strategies,
adequate measurement techniques and quality assurance procedures are
also an important part
of my research.
Research: Analysis of the past and future changes of snow depth and snow fall in the Alps. Maintenance of the long-term climatological snow measurements in Switzerland.
Consulting: Expert reports on the past and fast future development of the snow pack or the analysis of extreme snow events. Information on climate and weather related data of Switzerland. Expert advice in snow monitoring related questions in the "Expertenkommission für Kryosphärenmessnetze" (EKK)
