TITLE | Surface Air Temperature Variations and Lapse Rates from a Novel Meteorological Sensor Network on Olivares Basin, Central Chile.

SPEAKER | Prof Edward Hanna FRMetS, University of Lincoln.

ABSTRACT | Empirical studies of glacier meteorology, especially for the Southern Hemisphere, are relatively sparse in the literature. The innovative use of a network of highly-portable, low-cost thermometers is the basis of this presentation on high-frequency surface air temperature variations and lapse rates in an 800 metre elevational range. The results indicate that sub-hourly resolution of lapse rates in modelling glacier melt are likely to prove fruitful in improving melt models and our understanding of glacier response to climate change.
