Földgömb-Atacama Expeditions

Our goal

The goal of our expedition series, which forms the basis of our research programme, is to monitor the long-term environmental changes on the field in the Ojos del Salado area, which represents well the high altitude mountain blocks in the Dry-Andes region. The main aim of our programme is discovering the effects of global warming in the highest desert and tundra of the Earth with particular focus on the changes in water and ice presence. This research project is a special aspect of the global climate change research which will clarify the key elements of environmental change in one of the most extreme environments of the Earth.
