ALMATY. KAZINFORM Are you curious to find out how glaciers form, why they melt, and why water flows through them? Do you have any questions around alpine environment? Join the project from the 1-10 of September 2019 on ‘Adventure of Science: Women and Glaciers in Central Asia’ taking place in Kyrgyzstan!
