Rivera, A. (2011) : "Book Review. In the Shadow of Melting Glaciers. Climate Change and Andean Society." Hist. Geo Space Sci, 2, 97–98.

The tropical Andes of South America holds a huge number of untold stories about their societies and about the in- teractions between the locals and their natural beauties. The amazing dynamics of its natural system, including massive and some times shaking mountains, interacting with receding gla...


Belmar, A.; Bravo, C.; Casassa, C.; Clavero, J.; Rodriguez, J & Joyce. S. (2010) : "Field guide. Volcán Mocho-.Choshuenco-Chile. February 4, 2010" International Glaciological Conference, Ice and Climate Change; A view from the South. VICC. February 1-3, 2010, CECS, Valdivia, Chile.

The Mocho-Choshuenco Volcano has two different cones, Mocho and Choshuenco and is located at 39°56'S, 72°02'W. The volcano last erupted in 1864. Most of the summit area of both cones is covered by glaciers, 16.9km in total. As is the case for most Andean glaciers, Mocho's glaciers have retreated ...


Clavero, J.; Rivera, A.; Bown, F.; Bravo, C. & Barandun, M. (2010) : "Field guide. Volcán Villarrica-Chile. January 30, 2010" International Glaciological Conference, Ice and Climate Change; A view from the South. VICC. February 1-3, 2010, CECS, Valdivia, Chile, .

Volcán Villarrica is located in the modern Southern Volcanic Zone (SVZ) of the Chilean Andes at 39°30'S, being one of the most active in Chile in historical times (Petit-Breuilh and Lobato, 1994). It forms a NW-SE volcanic chain together with the Pleistocene-Holocene Quetrupillán and Lanín strato...


Rivera, A.; Christie, D.; Villalba, R. and Grosjean, M. (2010) : "Reconstructing Climate Variations in South America and the Antarctic Peninsula over the last 2000 years" II International symposium., .

The objective of the Conference is to gather experts from different fields in climate dynamics, paleoclimatology (instrumental, proxy data and models) and glaciology, in order to review current knowledge and discuss new data sets, evaluate the interpretation of proxy data, and to search for calib...


Rivera, A. , R. Zamora, C. Rada, J. Walton & S. Proctor (2010) : "Glaciological investigations on Union Glacier, Ellsworth Mountains, West Antarctica" Annals of Glaciology, .

Union Glacier, West Antarctica, was intensively mapped in December 2008, when an over snow traverse was conducted by CECS and ALE, with the aim to determine the ice-dynamical characteristics of the glacier, through mapping the crevasse fields and by providing a glaciological baseline for future s...


Wendt, J., A. Rivera, A. Wendt, F. Bown, R. Zamora, G. Casassa & C. Bravo (2010) : " Recent ice-surface-elevation changes of Fleming Glacier in response to the removal of the Wordie Ice Shelf, Antarctic Peninsula" Annals of Glaciology, 51(55), 97-102.

Regional climate warming has caused several ice shelves on the Antarctic Peninsula to retreat and ultimately collapse during recent decades. Glaciers flowing into these retreating ice shelveshave responded with accelerating ice flow and thinning. The Wordie Ice Shelf on the west coast of the Anta...
