Here I present some of the research outputs from my analysis of the 2016 and 2018 Glacier Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs) in the Brazo Rico-Lago Argentino lake system in Argentina. Below is a collation of the key diagrammatic representations of how I utilised Planet data to inform and guide my analysis. In QGIS, I measured changes in lake area and glacier advance using these images and aligned this with lake depth data to provide a reconstruction of the dynamics of the 2016 and 2018 damming and GLOF events. Please reach out if you are interested to discuss or see more of my study’s outputs!
