Mama Cotacachi: history, local perceptions, and social impacts of climate changes and glacier retreat in the Ecuadorian Andes / Robert E. Rhoades, Xavier Zapata Ríos, Jenny Aragundy Ochoa.

Title: Mama Cotacachi: history, local perceptions, and social impacts of climate changes and glacier retreat in the Ecuadorian Andes / Robert E. Rhoades, Xavier Zapata Ríos, Jenny Aragundy Ochoa.
Author(s): Rhoades, Robert E.
Zapata Ríos, Xavier.
Aragundy Ochoa, Jenny.
Date: 2008.
Publisher: California: University of California Press
In: Darkening peaks : glacier retreat, science and society. (2008.),
Abstract: Examines history, local perceptions, and social impacts of recent loss of glacier on Cotocachi, 4,939 m volcanic peak in Ecuador. Documents glacier's demise and human response using historical documents, photographic archives, historical paintings (e.g. 1880 Whymper sketch), meteorological records and government publications; also draws on ethnographic interviews and oral histories collected from local people (facilitated by workshops involving 3-d scale model), and field observations and monitoring of water availability. Identifies changes in rainfall and declines of local river flows and lake levels as factors in continuing conflict over land use between government, owners of large haciendas, indigenous communities, and poor and landless.
