Study on climate change and its effects
University of Bern, Switzerland?
The aim of the MAGIC (Measuring Atmospheric Gases in Ice Cores) project conducted by the University of Bern consists of developing a field measuring device for analyzing the air contained in polar ice, and in particular its methane composition. This device was used in the field in Greenland throughout the 2008 – 2009 period.
The aim was to explain the reasons for the onset of an imbalance in the climate system during the last ice age.
