Spatio-temporal rainfall variability in the Amazon basin countries (Brazil, Peru, Bolivia, Colombia, and Ecuador)
(Wiley Online Library, 2009-09)
Rainfall variability in the Amazon basin (AB) is analysed for the 1964-2003 period. It is based on 756 pluviometric stations distributed throughout the AB countries. For the first time it includes data from Bolivia, Peru, ...
Decadal changes in glacier parameters in the Cordillera Blanca, Peru, derived from remote sensing
(Cambridge University Press, 2008-06)
We present spatial patterns of glacier fluctuations from the Cordillera Blanca, Peru, (glacier area, terminus elevations, median elevations and hypsography) at decadal timescales derived from 1970 aerial photography, 2003 ...
Integrated assessment and adaptation to climate change impacts in the Peruvian Andes
(Copernicus GmbH, 2009-11)
The Andes as mountain regions worldwide, provide fundamental resources, not only for the local population. Due to the topographic characteristics, the potential for natural hazards is higher than elsewhere. In these areas, ...
Modelling the water balance in the glacierized Parón Lake basin (White Cordillera, Peru)
(Taylor & Francis, 2008)
The White Cordillera (northern Peru), with a glacial surface of 631 km2, is the largest glacierized mountain range in the Tropics. Due to the lack of physical data from most of its sub-basins, it is difficult to build a ...
