Project: Impacts of volcanic activity, climate and land cover changes on the ecology and watersed hydrology of andean lakes in southern central Chile
- project duration
- 01-FEB-04 – 31-JAN-06
- The current research proposal aims at reconstructing the climatic history and catchment hydrology of three large Andean lakes situated in southern Central Chile. Through a multidisciplinary approach incorporataing biology-limnology, geology and hydrological modelling we aim at assessing the impacts of natural and anthropogenic factors on these systems. The results of our study will provide the baseline data for the construction of integrated water management schemes.
