Geomorphological evolution of a debris‐covered glacier surface
There exists a need to advance our understanding of debris-covered glacier surfaces over relatively short timescales due to rapid, climatically induced areal expansion of debris cover at the global scale, and the impact ...
On Lifetimes of Dusty Debris Disks around A-type Stars
(IAU Editorial, 2014-01)
Evolution of surface characteristics of three debris-covered glaciers in the patagonian Andes from 1958 to 2020
(Frontiers Media, 2021)
A number of glaciological observations on debris-covered glaciers around the globe have shown a delayed length and mass adjustment in relation to climate variability, a behavior normally attributed to the ice insulation ...
Modelling the hydrological response of debris-free and debris-covered glaciers to present climatic conditions in the semiarid Andes of central Chile
We apply the process-based, distributed TOPKAPI-ETH glacio-hydrological model to a glacierized catchment (19% glacierized) in the semiarid Andes of central Chile. The semiarid Andes provides vital freshwater resources to ...
Classification of debris-covered glaciers and rock glaciers in the Andes of central Chile
In the Dry Andes of Chile (17 to 35 degrees S), debris-covered glaciers and rock glaciers are differentiated from true glaciers based on the percentage of surface debris cover, thickness of surface debris, and ice content. ...
Recent catastrophic debris flows in Chile: Geological hazard, climatic relationships and human response
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2006-12)
Debris flows are an important type of geological hazard in Chile, affecting cities, towns and rural areas throughout the country despite the variation in climate regimes. In this summary paper, recent debris flows in the ...
