  • Since the beginning, the CGI published its yearly Newsletter. In the course of the years, the periodical (that since 1978 was converted into “Geografia Fisica e dinamica Quaternaria”) became a scientific journal of international relevance, frequently hosting international contributions. Yet, it was still the official journal where scientific, associative and field activities directly related to CGI were published. The literature also includes monographs dedicated to Italian glaciers.

     


    Geografia Fisica e Dinamica Quaternaria (GFDQ)

    The journal is edited by the CGI under the patronage of the National Research Council. It was founded in 1978 and represents the continuation of the CGI Newsletter. The journal publishes memories and original notes, reviews, letters, and news in the field of physical geography, glaciology, geomorphology and Quaternary geology. Furthermore, it also publishes the official CGI proceedings, the newsletters and the reports of the International Association of Geomorphologists (I.A.G.) and the reports of the annual glaciological campaigns. Since 1988, some thematic volumes called Supplementi di Geografia Fisica e Dinamica Quaternaria were also published. These volumes host papers dedicated to specific arguments, conference proceedings, symposia and regional monographs.

     


    Bollettino del Comitato Glaciologico Italiano

    The publication of the CGI Bulletin, which is of major interest for the description and the study of glaciers, started in 1914 under the auspices of the Italian society for the advancement of science (SIPS) and of the Italian alpine club (CAI).
    Since 1937, on the other hand, the publication occurred under the patronage of the National Research Council (CNR). The name of the newsletter was kept the same, “Bollettino del Comitato Glaciologico Italiano”. Only between 1933 (n.13) and 1945 (n.23) it changed into “Bollettino del Comitato Glaciologico e della Commissione Glaciologica del CAI”. The 50 first issues are grouped in two series composed by 25 issues.

    Published issues are:

    First series:
    1 (1914) – 2 (1917) – 3 (1918) – 4 (1921) – 5 (1922) – 6 (1925) – 7 (1927) – 8 (1928) – 9 (1929) – 10 (1930) – 11 (1931) – 12 (1932) – 13 (1933) – 14 (1934) – 15 (1935) –16 (1936) – 17 (1937) – 18 (1938) – 19 (1939) – 20 (1940) – 21 (1941) – 22 (1942) – 23 (1945) – 24 (1947) – 25 (1948)

     

     

     

    Second series (from n. 7 to n. 15, the issues are divided in two parts concerning, respectively, glaciers and snow):
    1 (1950) –2 (1951) – 3 (1952) – 4 (1953) – 5 (1954) – 6 (1955) – 7, parte I (1956) – 7, parte II (1956) – 8, parte I (1957-58) – 8, parte II (1957-58) – 9, parte I (1959-60) – 9, parte II (1958-59) – 10, parte I (1961) – 10, parte II (1959-60) – 11, parte I + supplemento (1962) – 11, parte II (1960-61) – 12, parte I (1962) – 12, parte II (1961-62) – 13, parte I (1963) – 13, parte II (1962-63) – 14, parte I (1964) – 14, parte II (1963-64) – 15, parte I (1965) – 15, parte II (1964-66) – 16 (1966-68) – 17 (1969) – 18 (1970) – 19 (1971) – 20 (1972) – 21 + supplemento (1973) – 22 (1974) – 23 (1975) – 24 (1976) – 25, parte I (1977) – 25, parte II (1977)

     


    Inventory of Italian glaciers and Atlas of Italian glaciers (“Catasto Porro”)

    The CGI, since the beginning of its activity (1914) highlighted the need to create an “inventory of Italian glaciers, in order to provide an idea of our glacial patrimony and to secure an organic base for the study of our glaciers”.

    This praiseworthy and ambitious purpose will find an actual realization through two fundamental steps:

    1925 – publication of the “register of Italian Glaciers” by the Po hydrographical office. It consists of a statistical monograph edited following the programme and under the auspices of CGI by General Carlo PORRO. It is the first official census reporting the name of 774 glacial bodies recognized in the Alps and in the Apennines. The original cards are kept in the CGI archive;

    1927 – The CGI, in collaboration with the Military Geographic Institute (Istituto Geografico Militare, IGM), publishes the firs part of the Atlas of Italian glaciers, edited by Carlo PORRO and Francesco LABIUS. It consists of four charts (1:500.000) where 55 alpine and Apennine mountain groups holding glaciers are recognized. A second part of the Atlas holding a series of charts drawn to a scale of 1:25.000 and higher was announced, but it was never realized.

    Inventory of Italian glaciers

    This work results from collaboration between CGI and the National Research Council (CNR). It was published in four volumes between 1959 and 1962, under the scientific coordination of GIUSEPPE NANGERONI.

    • Volume I – List and bibliography of italian glaciers (1959); 172 p.; 3 maps;
    •
