With the joint work of 4 universities, studies on the structure and characteristics of the largest valley glaciers in the Jilo Mountains of Western Armenia have begun.
The study, to be carried out in collaboration with universities, aims to identify the largest Uludoruk glaciers in the foothills of the Jilo Mountains. The glacier has been declared a National Park.
Scientists will study in detail the formation of glaciers, structure, age, melting state of ice, environmental and climatic influences.
There are also large and small glacial lakes in the Jilo and Sat Mountains. The status of the Jilo Mountains and Amber Lakes as a national park is very important in terms of glaciers and nature protection in the region.
Glaciers, the existence of which is already known, began to form 2 million years ago and have survived to the present day.
