We welcome Gabriela Lenzano, glaciologist at IANIGLA, to exchange views between science and mountain users on the local evolution of glaciers linked to climate change.

Updated: Mar 13

For the end of the tourist season in our beautiful town, we welcome Gabriela Lenzano, glaciologist from IANIGLA, with the support of IACS (International Association of Cryospheric Sciences). We invite the community to participate in the talk on Sunday, April 7, at 7 pm at Chaltén Suites

How can scientific data be used for the application of knowledge by mountain users? How can mountain users' observations and scientific modeling interact? How are mountaineering practices evolving in the face of new global climate challenges? These are some of the questions that we will ask ourselves in the company of Gabriela Lenzano and under the moderation of Marie Anière Martinez, president of the Boana association.



Dialogues between science and community: In this participatory workshop, we will identify opportunities for adaptation to climate change in the Northern Zone of the Park. In the first part of the workshop, we will review good adaptation practices and illustrate them with examples. In the second part, we will hold roundtable discussions with the participants on the central themes of climate change adaptation.

  • Post-glacial ecosystems and meltwater: what are landscapes like with annual discharges of 10 gigatons?

  • Landslide risks in the Northern Zone: comparison of landslide maps of the Northern Zone with field observations.

  • Tourism economics and climate change adaptation: challenges of diversification, slow tourism and local planning.


In this second workshop, we will share perceptions, observations and emotions, as drivers of ecological action. We will also highlight the important role of women in the community as leaders of environmental preservation initiatives. We will open the dialogue to invited community members to discuss environmental leadership and collective proposals.

About researcher Gabriela Lenzano : Dr. M. Gabriela Lenzano has more than 18 years of experience in interdisciplinary research in the field of glaciology based on geospatial science and information technology. She is currently in charge of the Laboratory of Andean Geomatics (LAGEAN) and Adjunct Researcher at the Argentine Institute of Nivology, Glaciology and Environmental Sciences (IANIGLA) of the National Council of Scientific and Technical Research (CONICET, Argentina). Her career has been focused on glacier dynamics in Southern Patagonia and Central Andes through the detection of changes using remote sensing data mining techniques. She is currently chair of Working Group 8 "Environmental and Infrastructure Monitoring" of the Technical Commission II of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS).
