Geo-climatic hazards in the eastern subtropical Andes: distribution, climate drivers and trends

Iván Vergara et al.

Data sets

Station data (rainfall, temperatures) for Chile were downloaded from the CR(2) website F. Muñoz and R. Garreaud http://explorador.cr2.cl/

Station data (rainfall, temperatures) for Argentina were downloaded from the Integrated Hydrological Database Secretary of Infrastructure and Water Policy http://bdhi.hidricosargentina.gob.ar/

Short summary
Geo-climatic hazards usually cause large losses of human life and economic losses. As they are very susceptible to weather, in many regions of the world these hazards are changing in frequency and magnitude due to current climate change. The purpose of this paper is to understand if, in the subtropical Andes of Argentina, these phenomena are increasing or decreasing and subsequently to understand the causes of these possible changes.
