Dr Nathan Forthsyte and Dr Diana Contreras interchanged knowledge and experiences in the topics of glaciers, landslides and earthquakes with colleagues from the National Institute of Research in Glaciers and Mountain ecosystems (INAIGEM)
Dr Nathan Forthsyte and Dr Diana Contreras explored opportunities of collaboration in the topics of earthquakes and landslides with the National University of Santiago Antunez Mayolo (UNASAM) in Huaraz, Peru
Dr Nathan Forthsyte and Dr Diana Contreras visited the city of Huaraz (Peru). This city was struck by the 1970 Ancash earthquake (7.9 Mw). The earthquake triggered a snow avalanche from the Huascaran Mount buried the town of Yungai.
Dr Nathan Forthsyte and Dr Diana Contreras met Mr Leandro Rodriguez, the Executive Director of the seismic Regional Center for South America (CERESIS) during their visit to Peru in the framework of the GCA: ‘pump-priming’ activity in Peru.
