Abstract

This paper presents the findings of very recent research on the Lower Grindelwald Glacier (Bernese Alps). Numerous samples of palaeosols and fossil wood (tree trunks, roots and macro-remains) found in the lateral Stieregg and Zäsenberg moraines between 1986 and 1990 were radiocarbon dated. Owing to the good condition of several fossil tree trunks, dendrochronological analyses were also conducted. The AA. evaluate even more precisely how tongue-length and volume of the Lower Grindelwald Glacier changed over the course of time since 1530. This article covers the most recent data from the modern as well as from the pre-modern era
