Casassa, G., Rivera, A. & Carrasco, J. (2000) : "Glacier variations in the Southern Patagonia Icefield and their Relation with Climate" In: Sixth International Conference on Southern Hemisphere Meteorology and Oceanography, pp. 312-313.

Glacier variations during the past 50 years have been determined for the major 48 outlet glaciers of the Southern Patagonia Icefield, southern South America. Most glaciers exhibit a clear retreat, a few are in near-equilibrium and one has been advancing. These variations are analyzed in relation ...


Rivera, A., Casassa, G., Acuña, C. & Vieira, R. (2000) : "Recent glacier variations and snow line changes in central Chile" In: Sixth International Conference on Southern Hemisphere Meteorology and Oceanography, pp. 274-275.

Glaciers in the Chilean central Andes (28° - 41° S) have shown a signigicant frontal retreat during the last 4 decades, additionally, they present an important reduction of their surfaces. This process is believed to be a clear response to the temperature increase observed at weather stations hol...


Carrasco, J., Casassa, G. & Rivera, A. (2000) : "A warm event at Patriot Hills, Antarctica: An ENSO related phenomen?" In: Sixth International Conference on Southern Hemisphere Meteorology and Oceanography, pp. 240-241.

Patriot Hills located at the end of the Ellsworth Mountains, in the interior of West Antarctica. It is a smal hill about 400m aboce the ice/snow surface and 8km long, with the highest summit of 1246 m.a.s.l. More than a thousand kilometers separates Patriot Hills from the nearest open southern oc...


Casassa, G., Rivera, A., Lange, H. & Cárdenas, C. (2000) : "Estudios Glaciológicos en Patriot Hills, Antártica" In: IX Congreso Geológico Chileno, Vol 2, pp. 359-363.

Durante el período 1995-1997 se realizó un estudio glaciológico de balance de masa en Patriot Hills (80°18'S, 81°22'W), Antártica, auspiciado por el Instituto Antártico Chileno. El objetivo principal del proyecto fue determinar el estado del balance del hielo continental Antártico en es sector de...

Campo de Hielo Sur (CHS), ubicado entre los 48°20' y 51°30' de latitud sur, posee una superficie de ca. 13.000 km² de hielo, dividida en más de 48 cuencas glaciares principales, en extensión norte - sur de más de 350 km de largo. Se constituye en la mayor masa englaciada del hemisferio sur, fuera...


Kieffer, H., and the GLIMS Consortium (2000) : "New Eyes in the Sky Measure glaciers and Ice Sheets" Eos Transactions, American Geophysical Union, 81(24):1-4.

The mapping and measurement of glaciers and their changes are useful in predicting sea-level and regional water supply, studying hazards and climate change [Haeberli et al., 1998],and in the hydropower industry Existing inventories cover only about 67,000 of the world's estimated 160,000 glaciers...
