Fyffe, Catriona L.; Potter, Emily; Fugger, S.; Orr, Andrew; Fatichi, Simone; Medina, Katy; Hellström, Robert Å.; Shaw, Thomas E.; Bernat, Maud; Llacza Rodríguez, Alan; Jácome Vergaray, Gerardo; Aubry-Wake, Caroline; Gurgiser, Wolfgang; Perry, L. Baker; Suarez, Wilson; Quincey, Duncan J.; Loarte, Edwin; Pellicciotti, Francesca(American Geophysical Union, 2021-04)Acceso abiertoPeruvian glaciers are important contributors to dry season runoff for agriculture and hydropower, but they are at risk of disappearing due to climate warming. Their energy balance and ablation characteristics have previously ...
The Energy and Mass Balance of Peruvian Glaciers
Fyffe, C.L.; Potter, E.; Fugger, S.; Orr, A.; Fatichi, Simone; Loarte, Edwin; Medina, Katy; Hellström, R.Å.; Bernat, M.; Aubry-Wake, Caroline; Gurgiser, W.; Perry, L. B.; Suarez, Wilson; Quincey, D.J.; Pellicciotti, F.(John Wiley & SonsPE, 2021-12)Acceso abiertoPeruvian glaciers are important contributors to dry season runoff for agriculture and hydropower, but they are at risk of disappearing due to climate change. We applied a physically based, energy balance melt model at five ...
