    • A low power consumption radar system for measuring ice thickness and snow/firn accumulation in Antarctica 

      Uribe, José A.; Zamora, Rodrigo; Gacitúa, Guisella; Rivera Ibáñez, Sergio; Ulloa, David (2014)
      In order to measure total ice thickness and surface snow accumulation in Antarctica, we have designed and built a surveying system comprising two types of radar. This system is aimed at having low power consumption, low ...
    • Recent changes in total ice volume on Volcán Villarrica, Southern Chile 

      Rivera Ibáñez, Sergio; Zamora, Rodrigo; Uribe, José A.; Wendt, Anja; Oberreuter, Jonathan; Cisternas, Sebastián; Gimeno, Fernando; Clavero, Jorge (Springer, 2015)
      Results obtained by the first intensive airborne surveys carried out at Volca´n Villarrica (39S) in Southern Chile, are presented. These campaigns included the use of a scanner laser system, for detecting the glacier ...

    • Recent ice dynamic and surface mass balance of Union Glacier in theWest Antarctic Ice Sheet 

      Rivera Ibáñez, Sergio; Zamora, Rodrigo; Uribe, José A.; Jaña, R.; Oberreuter, Jonathan (Copernicus Publications, 2014)
      Here we present the results of a comprehensive glaciological investigation of Union Glacier (79°460 S/83°240 W) in theWest Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS), a major outlet glacier within the Ellsworth Mountains. Union Glacier ...
    • Subglacial Lake CECs: Discovery and in situ survey of a privileged research site in West Antarctica 

      Rivera Ibáñez, Andrés; Uribe, José; Zamora, Rodrigo; Oberreuter, Jonathan (AGU, 2015)
      We report the discovery and on-the-ground radar mapping of a subglacial lake in Antarctica, that we have named Lake CECs (Centro de Estudios Cientificos) in honor of the institute we belong to. It is located in the central ...
    • Topographic and hydrological controls on Subglacial Lake Ellsworth, West Antarctica 

      Vaughan, David G.; Woodward, John; Corr, Hugh F. J.; Rivera Ibáñez, Sergio; Wendt, Jens; Zamora, Rodrigo (AMER GEOPHYSICAL UNION, 2007-09-19)
      Subglacial Lake Ellsworth (SLE) was identified using reconnaissance data collected in the 1970s, here we present more detailed surveys. SLE lies beneath 3.2 km of ice in a subglacial valley in West Antarctica. It has ...
