      Projected future trends in water availability are associated with large uncertainties in many regions of the globe. In mountain areas with complex topography, climate models have often limited capabilities to adequately ...
    • The freezing level in the tropical Andes, Peru: An indicator for present and future glacier extents 

      Schauwecker, S.; Rohrer, M.; Huggel, C.; Endries, J. L.; Montoya, N.; Neukom, R.; Perry, B.; Salzmann, N.; Schwarb, M.; Suarez, Wilson

      Along with air temperatures, the freezing level height (FLH) has risen over the last decades. The mass balance of tropical glaciers in Peru is highly sensitive to a rise in the FLH, mainly due to a decrease in accumulation ...
    • Integrated assessment and adaptation to climate change impacts in the Peruvian Andes 

      Salzmann, N.; Huggel, C.; Calanca, P.; Díaz, A.; Jonas, T.; Jurt, C.; Konzelmann, Thomas; Lagos, P.; Rohrer, M.; Silverio, W.; Zappa, M.

      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, ...
    • The projected precipitation reduction over the Central Andes may severely affect Peruvian glaciers and hydropower production 

      Kronenberg, M.; Schauwecker, S.; Huggel, C.; Salzmann, N.; Drenkhan, Fabian; Frey, H.; Giraáldez, C.; Gurgiser, W.; Kaser, G.; Juen, I.; Suarez, Wilson; Hernaández, J.G.; Sanmartín, J.F.; Ayros, E.; Perry, B.; Rohrer, M.
