The book "Balance de masa glaciar" is now freely available for downloading

Since May 2016 when we published the book "Balance de masa glaciar", a manual written in Spanish about the glaciological mass balance method for glacier studies in Latin America, an increasing number of technicians, scientists, students and general public have requested a copy of the text. Originally we only printed 500 copies that went off completely, but now, after receiving very useful and positive feedbacks and suggestions, we are providing an updated digital version of the text for downloading.


This book is freely available for people interested on glaciers, methods and recent research in Latin America. The only restriction is a commercial use of this material. We ask anybody using the whole text or any part of this work, (figures, photos, data etc.), to properly acknowledge our authorship:


"Rivera A., F. Bown, F. Napoleoni, C. Muñoz and M. Vuille (2016), Balance de masa glaciar. Ediciones CECs, Valdivia, Chile, 203p."


Any comment or feedback will be very welcome.


We hope you will enjoy this contribution to glacier research.
