Cryospheric Commission (CC)

The task of the Cryospheric Commission (CC) is to observe the changes of the alpine cryosphere. Furthermore it is in charge of the supervision of all long-term national cryospheric monitoring networks.

The integral Swiss crypospheric-observation-network especially focuses on the following sections:

The commission is responsible for the documentation and the scientific processing of the collected data which has been ascertained by the monitoring networks. Alongside with providing reliable data for science it also supplies processed data for politics, the economy and the public. The ascertained data is of great significance in order to ensure an early diagnosis of possible changes in the alpine regions.
