Argentine Glaciology

Benito S. Colqui

Argentine Antarctic Institute, Buenos Aires, Argentina


A short history of the glaciological observations made in Argentina since the time of Darwin is presented. Four glaciers under study are described and an inventory prepared of the principal glaciers in (1) the Puna de Atacama (22°35′ to 27°03′S), (2) Cordillera proper (27°45′ to 44°56′S), and (3) Patagonic Ice (47°35′ to 50°44′S). The possible use of meteorological satellites is discussed in connection with recording the extent and variations in glacial fields. Tiros-IV satellite photographs of the north and south lobules of the Patagonic Ice are shown.
