New publication “Glacier Lake 513, Peru: Lessons for early warning service development”
In a new publication at the World Meteorological Bulletin, Christian Huggel, Christine Just, and colleagues reviewed the lessons learned from the design, implementation and operation of an early warning system (EWS) for glacier lake outburst floods (GLOFs) at Lake 513, one of our study sites, in the Peruvian Andes.
