- The Grünloch-Experiment (Lunz am See, Austria)

- Meteorological Field Campaign about temperature inversions in Alpine basins


 

 

March 29, Steinbach (Valley SW of Gruenloch)

At this trip we planned to download as much Hobos as possible and to have a look to the snow-situation at Gruenloch. 

 

 

 

We had very warm weather with Temperatures of +5°C at 850hPa (1500m).

 

 

 

 

 

 

At 1000 msl we put on our snowshoes. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The steep way up. The wet, heavy snow made it sometimes difficult to climb up on such steep slopes.

 

 

 

 

Maybe at this picture you can imagine how steep are some slopes. In case of danger of avalanches it is nearly impossible to cross such slopes (it would be suicide).

The problem of Mt. Dürrenstein is, that (like at all Austrian limestone plateaus) all descents are very steep until you rech the more flat plateau.

 

 

 

 

 

Beautyful weather! Bernhard is going along the ridge to the plateau of Dürrensteinalm.

 

 

 

At the plateau you'll find a lot of old, dense pine forests.

 

 

 

 

 

A valley close to Ybbstalerhuette. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After 4 hours we saw Ybbstalerhuette - time for lunch.

 

 

 

 

 

After lunch we prepared everything for Gruenloch.
