Example text

Much has yet to be quantified in terms of total existing glacial mass, and estimates of melt contributions to river systems refined. For further details, the reader is encouraged to review works, for example, by Pellicciotti et al. (2007, 2008) and Petersen and Pellicciotti (2011). Although vital in many ways, “secondary variables” such as radiation, wind and relative humidity suffer from the absence of long-term records for comparison with climate model outputs. In the Metropolitan Region, these variables have been routinely measured in the past decade for agricultural purposes.

Given the large scale of the GCM modelling grid, however, straddling the MR between ocean- and continental-related cells, further research is needed to refine these variable estimates. 5 Conclusions This chapter summarizes the main results obtained from estimates of future climate and hydrological conditions for the Metropolitan Region of Santiago. Results were presented for the 2045–2065 time period and based on the direct downscaling to local conditions of GCM projections (daily values) measured at selected meteorological stations.

Detailed studies report for some glaciers an even more pronounced loss. 28 J. McPhee et al. The Aconcagua River basin glaciers, for example, have experienced a 20 % area reduction on average since 1955 (Bown et al. 2008). The Juncal Norte glacier located in the headwaters of the Aconcagua River, approximately 70 km northeast of Santiago, shows a retreat of about 50 m per year (Rivera et al. 2002). On the other hand, the Direccio´n General de Aguas (DGA) has recently published a report on the historical trends of mass balance in the Echaurren Norte glacier.
