More Evidence That Some European Glaciers Are Growing Again
The Arcouzan glacier at the foot of Mont Valier (Pyrenees) has seen its surface gain nearly 3000 m2 at the end of the winter of 2012/13 which saw heavy snowfall. For the second year, the glacier has been growing. Its surface has increased from 1.8 hectares in 2011 to 2.2 hectares in 2012 to 2.5 hectares in 2013.
