Description

The map (GK500-LGM) shows the maximum extent of glaciation in Switzerland at the height of the last Ice Age around 24,000 years ago. It presents the latest results of current research on the Ice Age in the form of a high-quality map. The build-up and retreat of glaciers are indications of significant climate-related environmental changes during the relatively recent history of the Earth. By A. Bini, J.-F. Buoncristiani, S. Couterrand, D. Ellwanger, M. Felber, D. Florineth, H. R. Graf, O. Keller, M. Kelly, C. Schlüchter & P. Schoeneich, 2009
