Abstract

The AA. present some examples of the influence of climate and climate anomalies on the alpine environment in the Ortles-Cevedale Group, OCG, focusing on the different responses of Norway spruce tree-ring growth from one OCG valley (the Trafoi Valley) and of the glaciers from the same region. Spruce responses to the climate anomaly of 2003 were more evident with a one-year lag. Glacier mass loss in the OCG in 2003 was the highest since yearly measurement started. The examples reported confirm the strong and even divergent variations affecting the Alpine environment, induced by recent climate change
