Abstract

A sampling compaign on Marmolada Glacier (Dolomites, Italy) was undertaken on 7-8 september 2001, in order to collect samples of ice, snow and surface waters for chemical analyses. Such analyses, conducted on the field and in the analytical laboratory, suggested the occurence of strong chemical interactions between melting waters and the limestone bedrock. Evidence for a strong anthropic pressure on the glacier, related to winter and summer sport activities, is also reported. - (NF)
