Geology and glaciology centre

Summer 2020: Two new features in the Centre's permanent exhibition

Geomorphology sector :

Geomorphology is the study of landforms and their evolution. The main active processes in mountain environments are very active in the Val d'Hérens. This represents a real heritage for the valley.

Did you know that in recent years, climate change has caused an increase in boulder falls and landslides in the valley, especially during periods of heat waves and snowmelt?

Soapstone sector :

Did you know that this "soft" stone, which resists fire well, was also used to make pots and irons?
