Glaciological conferences organized by the CGI

The CGI promotes the organization of scientific workshops and meetings in order to diffuse scientific results, to highlight some major problems related to the study of Glaciology, and to maintain the contacts with national and international organizations. The increasing participation of young researchers to these events confirms the vigour of Italian research in the field of glaciology and represents a motivation to maintain this 40-years old tradition, that started in 1970 under the chair of Prof. Ardito Desio

Participants at the Second Conference Glaciological visiting Glacier Miage under the guidance of Prof. Ardito Desio (October 4, 1971).

  • • Summer school (1959, 22-27 august, Valtournanche glacier)
    “Held with the purpose to give indications to glaciological operators, especially young ones, for the development of yearly researches on glacier monitoring. The CGI believed it useful to group some volunteers and, directly on glaciers, make some measurements and observations […]. On glaciers, it is easier to discuss the problems and make agreements, and it is easier to find common and coordinated strategies about fieldworks during glaciological campaigns”.” (M. Vanni).
