GENEVA, Sept 28, 2022 (BSS/AFP) - Switzerland's glaciers lost six percent of their total volume in 2022 due to a dry winter and repeated summer heatwaves, shattering previous ice melt records, a report revealed Wednesday.


"2022 was a disastrous year for Swiss glaciers: all ice melt records were smashed," the Swiss Academy of Sciences' Cryospheric Commission said, adding that a two percent loss in 12 months was previously considered "extreme".
