Mountain Genius
Inauguriamo oggi la rubrica NEWS DAL MONDO DELLA RICERCA. Ogni mese approfondiremo un argomento legato a clima, montagna e sviluppo sostenibile tratto da lavori scientifici con l'obiettivo di portare i risultati dal #mondodellaricerca sempre più a far parte del parlare comune. 🇮🇹 Le cause sono diverse e non del tutto chiare, ma l'anomalia del Karakorum resta un fenomeno affascinante. La risposta di un ghiacciaio è definita da alcuni parametri caratteristici e dipende da tanti fattori quali morfologia e proprietà del ghiacciaio, clima, oltre che cambiamento climatico in atto e processi esterni. L'area del Karakoram in contrasto con il vicino Himalaya possiede un clima particolare dominato dai anticicloni tibetani, estati con temperature sempre più basse e precipitazioni in aumento. Aggiungendo la deforestazione e l'aumento di abbondanti irrigazioni, la risposta di questi ghiacciai è molto dinamica e diversificata. Tra gli impatti di questa risposta emerge fra tutti la variazione dei flussi d'acqua con conseguenze nelle valli sottostanti.🇬🇧The causes are different and not entirely clear, but the Karakoram anomaly remains a fascinating phenomenon. The response of a glacier is defined by some characteristic parameters and depends on many factors, such as morphology and properties of the glacier, climate, ongoing climate change and external processes. The Karakoram area in contrast to the nearby Himalaya has a particular climate dominated by tibetan anticyclones, summers with lower and lower temperatures and increasing rainfall. Adding deforestation and the increase of abundant irrigation, the response of these glaciers is very dynamic and diversified. Among the impacts of this response, the variation of water flows emerges with consequences in the underlying valleys.#karakoram #research #education #Science #mountains #preservethemountain #Hymalaya #ice #change #transformation #knowledge ...

MOUNTAIN GENIUS

The Mountain Hub

is a brand and a project aimed at collecting the know-how related to research, management, and protection of mountain areas

It’s a project aimed at:

HIGH SUMMIT COP 26

International Conference on Mountains, Climate Change and Sustainable Development

HIGH SUMMIT COP26

International Conference on Mountains, Climate Change and Sustainable Development

9 sessions dedicated to the main issues related to environmental research and management of mountain areas

Mountains

Ecosystems to be preserved
for the protection of the entire planet

Mountains are unanimously recognized as “sentinels of environmental changes”: they respond rapidly and deeply to climatic and environmental modifications and can lose essential ecosystem services, menacing the well-being of people depending on high-altitude resources.
