SCNAT Press Release 22. February 2016

Permafrost in the Swiss Alps has never been as warm as in the observation year 2014/2015. This is shown by the newest results of the Swiss Permafrost Monitoring Network PERMOS. The exeptionally high permafrost temperatures are, however, not only a result of the summer heat wave 2015 but of continuously warm conditions in the past years.
