Along the route our marmot, Marmottix will tell you lots of interesting things about the weather.

How does the Sun affect the weather? The Earth transmits the Sun’s heat to us through the air all around it, but there are specific effects to influence the reflection of the Sun’s rays and which regulate their influence.

How noisy, extreme and spectacular can the different natural forces be? Storms, landslides, lightning, can all be as spectacular as they are dangerous. Discover the sounds they make and how you should behave if one of them should take you by surprise.

The weather is influenced by many elements that can be measured using complex instruments. Find out how they work and note down the temperature, humidity and pressure values in the weather diary.

And don’t forget: the weather and the elements are very important when you are in the mountains and they must never be underestimated!
