1818, LA DEBACLE DU GIETRO-EP001-1818, LA DEBACLE DU GIETRO
No upcoming broadcast (for now).
1818, a particularly harsh winter. The Giétro glacier blocked the River Dranse until suddenly the ice gave way and a 32 metre high wave submerged the Val de Bagnes. Thanks to engineer Ignaz Venetz, an even worse catastrophe was avoided. The disaster led to the birth of glaciology and climatology.
