The B¨ o¨ ogg is a large model of a snowman, constructed of inflammable materials and filled with explosives. During the traditional festival of Sechsel¨ auten, which takes place each spring in Zurich, Switzerland, the B¨ o¨ ogg is placed atop a wooden pyre, which is set alight. According to popular legend, the time that elapses until the B¨

Connection between Caspian sea level variability and ENSO
The problem of the world greatest lake, the Caspian Sea, level changes attracts the increased attention due to its environmental consequences and unique natural characteristics. Despite the huge
The Mediterranean Sea Regime Shift at the End of the 1980s, and Intriguing Parallelisms with Other European Basins
This work analyzes and reviews long-term records of Mediterranean ecological and hydro-climate variables and finds that all point to a synchronous change in the late 1980s that encompassed atmospheric, hydrological, and ecological systems, for which it can be considered a regime shift.
Climate‐driven changes in spring plankton dynamics and the sensitivity of shallow polymictic lakes to the North Atlantic Oscillation
The results suggest that assessments of potential impacts of climate warming on biological processes in freshwater ecosystems demand basic knowledge about the relationships between global climate indices, local meteorological conditions, and the thermal response of various lake types.
Regime shift of snow days in Switzerland
The number of days with a snow depth above a certain threshold is the key factor for winter tourism in an Alpine country like Switzerland. An investigation of 34 long‐term stations between 200 and
Gulf of Trieste: A changing ecosystem
The results indicate the large, possibly critical, reduction in the abundance of the species Pseudocalanus elongatus, which is related to the general warming in the sea surface temperature and associated northerly displacement of the ecosystem and to the changes in the Mediterranean circulation that began at the end of the 1980s and affected the whole basin in the following years.
