The former glacier of Chacaltaya was anihilated by a combination of several factors which include a raise in temperatures, direct and idirect effects of both local and regional pollution... and more to be investigated.
The students of the LAC School on Aerosols visited the Chacaltaya GAW station. The station and the landscape were great, but riding back to the city was even more!
We deeply thank Antoine Deprez-Segobia for the gracious footage!
The Chacaltaya GAW station was officially inaugurated the 3rd of april 2012. The university authorities and members of the scientific consortium were present.
