Modeling the retreat of the Aneto Glacier (Spanish Pyrenees) since the Little Ice Age, and its accelerated shrinkage over recent decades
The Aneto, located on the Maladeta Massif (Central Pyrenees), is the largest glacier of the Pyrenees. The glacier is 675m long, occupies an area of 48.64 ha and has a maximum altitude of 3269m. In this study, we present a ...
Mapping Mountain Landforms and Its Dynamics: Study Cases in Tropical Environments
High mountain areas are critical for water security and natural hazard dynamics, as well as glacier and ecosystem conservation in a warming world. We present a brief account of the methodological steps for geomorphological ...
Equilibrium-line altitude and temperature reconstructions during the Last Glacial Maximum in Chirripó National Park, Costa Rica
Several high areas of Central America show evidence of past glacial activity, including glacial cirques, polished and striated bedrock surfaces and moraine deposits. As glacial remnants, these morphologies can guide ...
Tropical glacier reconstructions during the Last Glacial Maximum in Costa Rica
Numerosas altas montañas tropicales muestran evidencia de actividad glacial durante el Último Máximo Glacial (UMG) y han sido documentadas alrededor del mundo. El Cerro Chirripó, en Costa Rica, presenta formas de relieve ...
