The projected precipitation reduction over the Central Andes may severely affect Peruvian glaciers and hydropower production
Water from glaciers is crucial for the Peruvian hydropower production. Hence, we investigate the glacier-atmosphere and climate interactions in the Cordillera Vilcanota, considering scenarios of significant precipitation ...
The Energy and Mass Balance of Peruvian Glaciers
(John Wiley & Sons, 2021-12)
Peruvian 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 ...
