Hydro-glaciological modeling of a tropical glacier in Peru

A professional technician of the Unit of Glaciology and Water Resources of the National Water Authority of Peru is currently preparing his PhD research thesis in the “Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina (UNALM)” in Lima, Peru, on hydro-glaciological modeling in the tropical glacier of Yanamarey, in the Cordillera Blanca.

Hydro10 provides a technical support to build hydro-glaciological models using the RS MINERVE software and its hydrological models GSM (glacial watersheds) and SOCONT (non-glacial watersheds).

The objective of the thesis is to provide future hydrological scenarios based on climate change and to analyze the possible consequences.
