A collaborative effort by the research community has enabled the very first Alpine-wide assessment of station snow depth – and found decreases in snow depth in spring across all altitudes and regions over the last 50 years.

New research published in the journal The Cryosphere evaluates snow data for the period 1971-2019 from more than 2000 measuring stations in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Slovenia, and Switzerland, making it the first Alpine-wide assessment of station snow depth. The study, coordinated by Eurac Research, is the result of an international collaborative research effort contributed to by over 30 partners.

The Earth Observation for Alpine ecosystems ‘eco4alps’ project, a regional initiative of the European Space Agency (ESA) and GEO Mountains affiliate project, seeks the mountain research community's input to assess stakeholder requirements in Alpine ecosystems.
