In October, the Young Geomorphologists representatives propose a two-day excursion into the landscapes of the Saas valley to explore glacial and periglacial geomorphology. This excursion will be a great opportunity to discuss the impacts of this tremendously dry and warm summer on the landscape, but also to go back in time and trace the research done on the historical site of Gruben.
