Bravo, C., Loriaux, T., Rivera, A., and Brock, B. W. (2017) : "Assessing glacier melt contribution to streamflow at Universidad Glacier, central Andes of Chile" Hydrol. Earth Syst. Sci, 21, 3249-3266, https://doi.org/10.5194/hess-21-3249-2017.

Glacier melt is an important source of water for high Andean rivers in central Chile, especially in dry years, when it can be an important contributor to flows during late summer and autumn. However, few studies have quantified glacier melt contribution to streamflow in this region. To address th...

Cooper (2017) : "Antarctic ice sheet discharge driven by atmosphere-ocean feedbacks at the Last Glacial Termination" Scientific Reports 7, Article number: 39979, DOI:10.1038/srep39979.

Reconstructing the dynamic response of the Antarctic ice sheets to warming during the Last Glacial Termination (LGT; 18,000–11,650 yrs ago) allows us to disentangle ice-climate feedbacks that are key to improving future projections. Whilst the sequence of events during this period is reasonably...

Glaciers provide excellent records of climate change. Samples of particulates and gases can be extracted from ice cores, from which the past composition of the atmosphere can be reconstructed. Ice cores also record temperature and moisture, and all of this information is stored in dateable, conse...

We show how a dynamical system given by a t-score function for some class of monotonic data transformations generates consistent extreme value estimators. The variation of their values increases the uncertainty of proper assessment of climate change. Two important examples illustrate the methodol...

This article reports the discovery of the subglacial Lake CECs (named in honor of the Centro de Estudios Científicos), located in the central part of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS), on the ice divide between the Minnesota Glacier and the Institute Ice Stream. This lake, which was discovered...

Se presenta una actualización al año 2015 de las variaciones frontales de 5 glaciares que desprenden témpanos en las Torres del Paine de Chile y 2 en el Parque Nacional los Glaciares de Argentina, todos los cuales tienen un área combinada de 726.4 km². Estos glaciares han experimentado sin excepc...
