Facing unprecedented drying of the Central Andes? Precipitation variability over the period AD 1000-2100
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2015-08)
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
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
(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, ...
A combined view on precipitation and temperature climatology and trends in the southern Andes of Peru
(John Wiley and Sons, 2020-05-13)
In the southern Peruvian Andes, communities are highly dependent on climatic conditions due to the mainly rain-fed agriculture and the importance of glaciers and snow melt as a freshwater resource. Longer-term trends and ...
