Vulnerability of a top marine predator to coastal storms: a relationship between hydrodynamic drivers and stranding rates of newborn pinnipeds
(Springer Nature, 2020)
Coastal storms have increased in recent decades, affecting many species, including the South American sea lion (Otaria byronia). Reports of stranded sea lion pups are becoming common in Chile, presumably due to the increase ...
Towards a multi-hazard analysis of infrastructure in a seismic coast subjected to climate change, with a focus on the Chilean coastline
(The University of Queensland, 2020)
The physics of some of the most relevant climatic and geophysical drivers affecting the Chilean coasts are reviewed. Some relevant figures about the country are introduced, and recent findings and research gaps on extreme ...
A Story of Four Eggs in Goto Island, Japan
(Coastal Education and Research Foundation, 2020)
Evidence of climate-driven changes on atmospheric, hydrological, and oceanographic variables along the Chilean coastal zone
The Chilean coastal zone (CCZ) is subjected to a complex spectrum of anthropogenic, geophysical, biogeochemical, and climate-driven perturbations. Potentially affected variables including atmospheric sea level pressure ...
The 1730 Great Metropolitan Chile Earthquake and Tsunami Commemoration: Joint Efforts to Increase the Country’s Awareness
On 8 July 1730, a great earthquake struck metropolitan Chile, causing extensive damage 1000 km along the country and focused in Valparaíso. Due to the date of occurrence of this event, large uncertainties about the ...
Non-Stationary Probabilistic Tsunami Hazard Assessments Incorporating Climate-Change- Driven Sea Level Rise
We face a new era in the assessment of multiple natural hazards whose statistics are becoming alarmingly non-stationary due to ubiquitous long-term changes in climate. One particular case is tsunami hazard affected by ...
Unexpected effects of coastal storms on trophic ecology of two rocky reef fish species
Coastal storm risks have been increasing over the last couple of decades, affecting both marine infrastructure and human security. Nevertheless, the ecological impact on intertidal marine fishes has not been addressed yet. ...
Recent Changes in the Low-Level Jet along the Subtropical West Coast of South America
Surface winds along the subtropical west coast of South America are characterized by the quasi-weekly occurrences of low-level jet events. These short lived but intense wind events impact the coastal ocean environment. ...
High-Frequency Variability of the Surface Ocean Properties Off Central Chile During the Upwelling Season
The ocean off south-central Chile is subject to seasonal upwelling whose intensity is mainly controlled by the latitudinal migration of the southeast Pacific subtropical anticyclone. During austral spring and summer, the ...
Cambios espacio-temporales costeros con imágenes Landsat 8 y Sentinel 2 (2015-2019) en Chile central, playa Reñaca, bahía de Concón y bahía de Algarrobo
(Editorial Universitat Politècnica De València, 2021)
Las áreas costeras de la región de Valparaíso de Chile por sus características oceanográficas, climáticas y ecológicasson de gran importancia para el desarrollo turístico, económico y ambiental del país. Las costas de la ...
