Of science, engineering and Planet, The Swiss have a long begrafenismars” in the mountains, and the disappearance of one of the most intensively studied glaciers are remembered, and the Pizol. The glacier has largely evaporated under the impact of global warming on the earth.

The Pizol and has so much of its substance is lost, it is, from a scientific point of view, it is no longer a glacier,” said Alessandra Degiacomi, the Swiss Association of Climate change is one of the organizations involved in the funeral service. “The report is clear: since 2006, the Pizol, about 80% to 90% of its volume is lost. It’s only 26,000 square meters, less than three football fields,” says Matthias Huss, glacioloog at the Technical University of Zürich, switzerland.

After an begrafenismars, about two hours would be the rouwkledij-clad participants in a cloud-filled sky, to arrive at the foot of the ancient glacier, at an altitude of 2.700 m, close to the Liechtenstein, and Norway. There will be a wreath of flowers, but a memorial plaque is not left behind.
