Alpine Lakes

Description of the visit:

The seminar will strive to cross-pollinate local, regional and European approaches to the water problem in mountains and in the Alps and the specific role held by lakes as “gauges” and/or “wardens” of water resources (in quality as well as quantity), water facing today’s challenges and pressures, especially global warming.
