Koppes, M., R. Sylwester, A. Rivera, B. Hallet. (2010) : " Variations in sediment yield over the advance and retreat of a calving glacier, Laguna San Rafael, North Patagonian Icefield" Quaternary Research, 73, 84-95.

Bathymetric and sub-bottom acoustic data were collected in Laguna San Rafael, Chile, to determine sediment yields during the Little Ice Age advance and sub sequent retreat of San Rafael Glacier. The sediment volumes and sub aqueous land forms imaged are used to interpret the proglacial dynamics a...


Castruccio, A. J. Clavero & A. Rivera. (2010) : " Comparative study of lahars generated by the 1961 and 1971 eruptions of Calbuco and Villarrica volcanoes, Southern Andes of Chile" Journal of Volcanology and Geothermal Research, doi: 10.1016/j.jvolgeores.2009.12.005.

The Villarrica and Calbuco volcanoes, of the Andean Southern Volcanic Zone, are two of the most active volcanoes in Chile and have erupted several times in the XX century. The 1961 eruption at Calbuco volcano generated lahars on the North, East and Southern flanks, while the 1971 eruption at Vill...


CECs (2009) : "Estrategia nacional de glaciares" Centro de Estudios Científicos CECs, 1-289.

Chile es el país que posee la mayor superficie de glaciares de Sudamérica, con un área aproximada de 21,000 km² distribuidos en miles de glaciares, que se extienden desde las cumbres del Altiplano hasta el extremo austral del continente. En su gran mayoría, los glaciares de Chile han experimentad...


Paul, F., R.G. Barry, J.G. Cogley, H. Frey, W. Haeberli, A. Ohmura, C.S.L. Ommanney, B. Raup, A. Rivera & M. Zemp (2009) : "Recommendations for the compilation of glacier inventory data from digital sources" Annals of Glaciology, 50(53), 119 - 126.

Modern geoinformatic techniques allow the automated creation of detailed glacier inventory data from glacier outlines and digital terrain models (DTMs). Once glacier entities are defined and an appropriate DTM is available, several methods exist to derive the inventory data (e.g. minimum,maximum ...

Nicholson, L., J. Marín, D. Lopez, A. Rabatel, F. Bown & A. Rivera (2009) : "Glacier inventory of the upper Huasco valley, Norte Chico, Chile: glacier characteristics, glacier change and comparison with central Chile" Annals of Glaciology, 50(53), 111-118.

Results of a new glacier inventory of the upper Huasco valley, which lies within the arid Norte Chico zone of the Chilean Andes, are presented for 2004. Despite the high altitude, the glaciation in this region is limited in extent and is not classical mountain glaciation, which poses difficulties...

Masiokas, M., Rivera, A., Espizúa, L.,Villalba, R., Delgado S., and J.C. Aravena. (2009) : "Glacier fluctuations in extratropical South America during the past 1000 years" Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology, 281, 242 - 268.

This paper presents an updated, extensive review of glacier fluctuations during the past 1000 years in the extratropical Andes of South America between ca. 17° and 55°S. Given the variety of environmental conditions and evidence available for glacier fluctuations across this wide latitudinal rang...
