CALICE Calibrating Plant Biodiversity in Glacier Ice

The highest aeropalynogical sampler in Europe

The highest Hirst-type aeropalynological sampler in Europe is running!

Lanzoni-trap at Cima Presena

An Hirst-type pollen sampler was installed at the arrival of the Cima Presena cableway, at 3000 m s.l.m.

It is collecting daily modern pollen data in the nearby of the glacier where ice cores were retrieved. 

The pollen monitoring is realized thanks to the technical help of the Civil Protection Department of the Provincia Autonoma di Trento, the Carosello Tonale spa and the Geographical Information System Unit of Fondazione Edmund Mach.
