The analysis of the Landsat ETM+ images at Hariot glacier shows the collapse of the floating tongue between 2008 and 2009 with an area loss of 33 km2. The disintigration of the ice tongue was followed by a surge that ended in the calving of 4 icebergs ranging from 0.4 to 0.6 km2.

Poster presented recently at the conference "International Glaciological Conference Ice and Climate Change: A View from the South": , helded in the southern and beautiful city of Valdivia (39° 48', N - 73° 14', O), Chile. It presents the albedo changes at the glaciers of Volcán Michinmahuida caused by the volcanic ashes of Volcán Chaitén in the Southern Andes.
This is my poster presented at the conference: High altitude glaciers and climate change, helded in the northen and beautiful city of Tromsø [69° 42' N - 19° 00' E], Norway. It summaries some results of my thesis about the glacier variations of ice-capped volcanoes in the Southern Andes.
Midnight sun in Tromsø, the gateway to the Arctic.

Actually, this photo was taken at 3:34 am. I was attending a conference on high altitude glaciers and climate change at the beautiful city of Tromsø in Norway.
