ALPOLE Mission

The ALPOLE mission is to address key challenges related to environmental change in high-altitude and high-latitude regions both in Switzerland and in other sentinel locations worldwide that are undergoing rapid and unprecedented transformations. These transformations are of global, regional and local relevance for natural ecosystems, the built environment and human well-being.

Researchers at ALPOLE focus on improving process-based understanding and predictions of climate-induced impacts on the environment, investigating environmental adaptation to climatic changes, and exploring mitigation and adaption strategies.
