We study the variations of glaciers, ice flow dynamics, and their relationship with climate change. The study area includes the Andes of Central Chile, the Chilean Lake District, the Northern and Southern Patagonian Ice Fields, the Antarctic Peninsula and the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS). Our methods include systematic field measurements and monitoring of glaciers (GPS, radio echo-sounding, mass and energy balance) and satellite remote sensing (visible, infrared and radar data).
