Air temperature, radiation budget and area changes of Quisoquipina glacier in the Cordillera Vilcanota (Peru)
Suarez, Wilson; Macedo, Nicolás; Montoya, Nilton; Arias, Sandro; Schauwecker, Simone; Huggel, Christian; Rohrer, Mario; Condom, Thomas(American Geophysical Union, 2015)Acceso abiertoThe Peruvian Andes host about 71% of all tropical glaciers. Although several studies have focused on glaciers of the largest glaciered mountain range (Cordillera Blanca), other regions have received little attention to ...
Can we use TRMM-PR bright band heights to estimate the snow-rain transition in high mountain regions?
Schauwecker, Simone; Rohrer, Mario; Schwarb, Manfred; Huggel, Christian; Suarez, Wilson; Arias, Sandro; Salzmann, Nadine; Gurgiser, Wolfgang(American Geophysical Union, 2015)Acceso abiertoField and modelling based research indicates that for tropical glaciers, variations in snow cover and the altitude of the snow line via albedo effects are among the most crucial factors to explain the differences in annual ...
Future runoff from glacierized catchments in the Central Andes could substantially decrease
Kronenberg, Marlene; Schauwecker, Simone; Huggel, Christian; Salzmann, Nadine; Drenkhan, Fabian; Frey, Holger; Giráldez, Claudia; Gurgiser, Wolfgang; Kaser, Georg; Suarez, Wilson; García Hernández, Javier; Fluixá-Sanmartín, Javier; Ayros, E.; Rohrer, Mario(American Geophysical Union, 2016-04)Acceso abiertoIn Peru, about 50% of the energy is produced from hydropower plants. An important amount of this energy is produced with water from glaciated catchments. In these catchments river streamflow is furthermore needed for other ...
Relevance of future snowfall level height in the Peruvian Andes for glacier loss in the 21st century under different emission scenarios
Schauwecker, Simone; Kronenberg, Marlene; Rohrer, Mario; Huggel, Christian; Endries, Jason; Montoya, Nilton; Neukom, Raphael; Perry, Baker; Salzmann, Nadine; Schwarb, Manfred; Suarez, Wilson(American Geophysical Union, 2017)Acceso abiertoIn many regions of Peru, the competition for limited hydrological resources already represents a large risk for conflicts. In this context, and within the circumstances of climate change, there is a great interest in ...
