Article
Freezing temperatures are responsible for population and ecosystem damage, and their spatial extent, frequency, and duration may change in a warming world. Few studies are available concerning the analysis of extreme freezing in Mexico, and none have evaluated the probability of occurrence. This study identified the characteristics of past and rece...
Chapter
The interaction of volcanic activity with snow and ice bodies can cause serious hazards and risks. These interactions relate to enhanced heat flow, tephra in contact with the ice and snow resulting in the alteration of surficial ablation, and interaction with pyroclastic flows and incandescent materials. Such interactions can result in the formatio...
Article
The Bay of La Paz (BLPZ), located in the southwestern Gulf of California, is a region of significant biological productivity and strong environmental variability that remains to be understood. In particular, the spatial signature of different El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) conditions and their impact on the ecology of the bay remains puzzling...

Tropical cyclones (TCs) are natural systems that develop over ocean basins and are key components of the atmospheric activity during the warm season. However, there are still knowledge gaps about the combined positive and negative TC impacts on the structure and function of coastal socio-ecosystems. Using remote sensing tools, we analyzed the frequ...
Article
Tropical cyclones (TCs) are extreme weather events that frequently occur along the coast of northwestern Mexico, but an assessment of dry forest damage on this area after their impact had not been investigated yet. Thus, the effect of strong winds and high precipitation rates were analyzed for the first time on the dry forests of the southern tip o...
Article
Full-text available
The evolution of Mexican glaciers (19° N) in the climate context is poorly understood despite these glaciers are important indicators of regional climate change. The detailed patterns of glacier recession since the Little Ice Age (LIA) have exacerbated during the past years and decades. Their relationship to local and regional climate change needs...
Book
Full-text available
El volcán Popocatépetl es el segundo volcán más activo de México y el de mayor riesgo, debido a su historial de erupciones altamente explosivas documentadas en el registro estratigráfico y al número de personas e infraestructura que se encuentran sobre sus laderas y planicies aledañas (e.g. Siebe et al., 1996; Siebe y Macías, 2006). La emisión y d...
Book
Full-text available
La actualización del Mapa de Peligros del volcán Popocatépetl (versión 2016) ha sido elaborada usando Sistemas de Información Geográfica (SIG) compatibles con el Atlas Nacional de Riesgo, con criterios más modernos de diseño y representación. Se espera que pueda ser una herramienta útil para la gestión territorial y de riesgos, en la toma de decisi...

Conference Paper
Mexican glaciers are unique glacial forms of the cryosphere at 19°N. It is well known that these glaciers exist because of the high altitude of the mountains where they are. In previous work, Mexican glaciers were considered as special glaciers with characteristics different from those at mid and tropical latitudes. This study shows for the first t...

The glaciers of Mexico are very small ice bodies located on top of the highest mountains of Mexico. They represent a natural gauge for the climatic changes at the 19 degrees N latitude where no other ice bodies are located around the world. Glaciar Norte glacier on Citlaltepetl Volcano, Mexico, has been retreating in a huge scale, just like other g...
Article
Full-text available
In this study, a detailed analysis of the measurements made on Glaciar Norte of Citlaltépetl volcano in 1958 by Lorenzo (1964) is conducted. A series of inconsistencies are evident when comparing the dimensions of Citlaltépetl volcano's glaciers and those of the glaciers on Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl volcanoes. From these inconsistencies it was...
Conference Paper
We present the most recent instrumentation, analysis and state of the art on glaciological studies of Glaciar Norte on Citlaltépetl Volcano. The results described here are the result of glacier activity at a dormant volcano with very low activity such as slight vapor emissions. In contrast with Popocatépetl Volcano's glaciers, where the climatic si...
Conference Paper
This work describes the influence of eruptive activity on the evolution of the glacial cover on Popocatepetl volcano. Here, we try to answer a simple question: what had happened if this glacier had not been affected by the volcanic activity? In order to answer this question we modeled the mass balance evolution of this glacier using meteorological...
Article
Full-text available
Satellite imagery and net radiation data collected between 2001 and 2007 for Citlaltépetl Volcano confirm the dramatic shrinkage of Glaciar Norte and the elimination of Jamapa and Chichimeco glacier tongues. The Glaciar Norte rapidly retreated between 2001 and 2002 while for 2007 this retreat decreases considerably. Jamapa and Chichimeco tongues di...

In this work the structural modeling appears and statistical of the behavior of meteorological variables during a year (June 2005-2006) using data of the weather station of the Faculty of Engineering of the BUAP with support of data of REMA and CNA. A statistical and mathematical development has been used simple, relating diverse variables of the c...
