taille et en épaisseur. «Qu’est-ce que

cela signifie pour la nature?» s’enquiert

Jan. Marco lui explique les conséquences

de ce phénomène: «Les glaciers sont de

grands réservoirs d’eau. Lorsqu’il pleut

ou qu’il neige, ils emmagasinent cette

eau et la restituent lentement pendant

l’année. S’il n’y a plus de glaciers,

l’eau s’écoule immédiatement et peut

provoquer des inondations et des

sécheresses.»

Jan décide de se pencher davantage

sur les questions relatives au climat et

au réchauffement climatique. «Nous,

les humains, devons faire quelque chose

pour les glaciers subsistent dans le

futur» déclare-t-il.

Jan stands on a glacier

What a fantastic feeling! For the very

first time in his life, Jan is standing

on a real glacier. The Jungfrau

Region has many large and small

glaciers. Jan wants to learn more

about these fascinating ice masses.

Jan meets Marco Bomio. He’s a teacher

and mountain guide, so he knows almost

everything about glaciers. Jan learns

that glaciers are the world’s largest

fresh-water reservoirs. But the glaciers

are gradually shrinking because of global

warming.

The glaciers are melting

Marco explains that up on the glacier,

snow and rain freeze to become ice. But

when the ice below melts faster than

new ice is formed on the surface, the

glacier becomes ever shorter and

thinner.

Jan wants to know what that means

for the natural world. Marco explains

the effects to him: «Glaciers are huge

reservoirs. When it rains or snows, they

store the water and release it slowly

over years. If there were no more glaciers,

the water would flow away at once

leading to floods or periods of drought.»

Jan decides to take more interest in the

climate and global warming. «Surely we

humans can do something so that we

still have glaciers in future,» he thinks.
