Ice caves photographed for first time

8 posts in this topic

These spectacular ice caves deep below a Swiss glacier have been mapped, photographed and surveyed for the first time.

A team of eight descended into the moulins – vertical shafts – below the Gorner Glacier near Zermatt in October.

Their work inside the remarkable icy caverns will help researchers get a better understanding of glaciers and their rate of melting.
