Geoinformation and climate

How have our glaciers changed in extent over the past few decades? How do monthly and annual averages of temperature and precipitation at a particular location change over time? Geoinformation also provides important bases for climate research.

Understanding climate change and natural fluctuations using meteorological data of MeteoSwiss

The climate in Switzerland is characterised by large natural fluctuations. Until the beginning of the 20th century, these fluctuations were primarily due to natural causes. Later on, there are effects, in particular the temperature rise of the last few decades, that can only be explained in terms of the increasing greenhouse gas emissions (climate change).

Geoinformation and clean water

What is the condition of a water course at a particular location? Where are watercourses in insufficient ecomorphological condition? How high is the concentration of pollutants in groundwater or in watercourses at a particular measuring point? Geoinformation also provides valuable information in the field of water availability and sustainable water management.
