Glacier of the month, January: Glacier des Bossons

Many glaciers have been observed in their historical evolution. A paradigmatic case is Glacier des Bossons, in the Mont-Blanc massif. Since its tongue arrived close to Chamonix village in the past, paintings and pictures of its aspect a century or longer ago have been compared with recent pictures quite often.

In this case we will show side by side pictures taken in 1987, after the last oscillation, and in 2011.
