During the Ice Ages the European Alps were covered by a thick layer of ice.
Traces of large ice sheets from the Pleistocene on a seamount off the north-eastern coast of Russia have been discovered by a team of geologists and geophysicists from the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research.
