Atlas of risky glaciers (France): "Glaciers a risques, Alpes francaises: inventaire et suivi"

This work is a first attempt of a precise inventory of the glaciers in the French Alps, with some catastrophic events (glacier falls, outburst of glacial lakes, internal water pockets). The Atlas presents the glaciological scientific works of the century. An analysis of the observed climat warming (since 1850) is also developed.

This work has been carried out in 1999, for the French Ministry in charge of Environment. The data of this inventory has been included into the Gridabase database at the beginning of the Glaciorisk project.
