Please do not step on the slopes - Ghajn Tuffieha

Climbing these slopes is very dangerous and critically increases the erosion process.


Please help us to protect the area by using the indicated path

 


About erosion: The archipelago of Malta is made of calcareous and clay rock formations and it is characterized by high coastal erosion. The clay has a softer consistency than the limestone. The power of the sea and the climatic conditions (mainly temperature, wind, humidity and exposure to the sun) act differentially on these rocks; in fact clays are being eroded faster than the limestone.


Sliding down along or climbing this clay slope induces the removal of clay sediments which fall downwards by gravity. These sediments are then removed by the sea.


Thank you for your collaboration.

CHASING ICE (2012)
Directed by: Jeff Orlowski
Plot: National Geographic Magazinenal Geographic' photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change. But through his Extreme Ice Survey, he discovers undeniable evidence of our changing planet. In 'Chasing Ice,' we follow Balog across the Arctic as he deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras designed for one purpose: to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers. Balog's hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Traveling with a young team of adventurers by helicopter, canoe and dog sled across three continents, Balog risks his career and his well-being in pursuit of the biggest story in human history. As the debate polarizes America and the intensity of natural disasters ramp up around the world, 'Chasing Ice' depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to gather evidence and deliver hope to our carbon-powered planet
