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 ...
Debris flows in the Andean ranges of central Chile and Argentina triggered by 2013 summer storms: characteristics and consequences
In January and February 2013, heavy rainfall during local summer storms triggered a large number of landslides in the Andes Main and Frontal ranges of central Chile and Argentina (32°–34° S). Most of the mass movements ...
Colisional Cloud Debris and Propelled Evasive Maneuvers
Space debris clouds exist at various altitudes in the environment outside the Earth. Fragmentation of debris and/or collision between the debris of a cloud increases the amount of debris, producing smaller debris. This ...
