Physics of Glaciers (lesson on a glacier)

Learn how glaciers work, from a glaciologist, whilst on a glacier! Fabian Walter of ETH Zurich joined a group of us on the Gorner Glacier (Gornergeltscher) in the Swiss Alps to explain the physics behind what we were seeing. Topics covered include glacial floods, drainage systems, mass balance and the effects of climate change.
