Variaciones recientes de glaciares entre 41 S y 49 S y su relación con los cambios climáticos
Abstract and Figures
The volumetric variations of glaciers located between 41º S and 49º S are pre- sented, which have been compared with climatic trends. The analysis used data from meteorological stations, remote sensing, cartography and land survey. An overall retreat and thinning is detected, which are fairly related with the recent climate trends detected on this zone. The ratio between area lost and total area in each glacier fluctuates among 1.5 to 9%. For detailing more specifically, the relationship between the changes of these glaciers and the climate changes, geometric and morphologic features, was taken into account. This illustrates that the importance of the temperature and rainfall trends is different in each glacier.
