The glacier, that is over a kilometer sq., hangs over a drop-off southeast of the mountain’s summit and is beneath shut monitor since 2013. antecedently it had affected at a rate quite 30cm each day solely eventually throughout the summer months.
“These phenomena show yet again however the mountain is experiencing a amount of nice changes because of climate factors, thus it’s particularly vulnerable,” mister Miserocchi aforesaid.

“News that a ice mass on mountain peak risks collapsing could be a warning that can’t leave North American country indifferent, it should shake North American country up and that we have to be compelled to mobilise,” Giuseppe Conte, said. However, there’s no thanks to learn exactly once the ice mass can collapse as per the consultants, and there’s no warning system in situ.
