Floods in Peru affecting over half of the country

Flooding near Machu Picchu in 2010.

Recent heavy rains triggered severe floods and mudslides in Peru. According to El País, there were at least 75 people reported dead on 20 March 2017. The floods are the worst in almost 30 years, affecting over half of the country. There are shortages of food and water in many areas, including the capital Lima, which has been without water since 13 March. The floods are linked to El Nino phenomenon, which increases evaporation and brings heavy rains.

Peru: First National Forest Monitoring Maps released

Deforestation in Peru detected by Landsat 8 in August 2013.

Peru hosts about 75 percent of the western Amazon jungle. Deforestation is therefore a critical topic for the country. Now, a major milestone in conserving and managing the western Amazon has been reached by mapping more than 95 percent of Peruvian forests using archived satellite imagery.

ESA Satellites show rising ground in Andes

In the central Andes mountains, satellites have detected ground deformation under way above a major subterranean magma body. The Altiplano–Puna volcanic province is part of an active volcanic arc in South America’s central Andes. Extending through Peru, southwestern Bolivia, Chile and northwestern Argentina, it is home to a number of large calderas formed following catastrophic eruptions. Beneath the surface of Altiplano–Puna, about 17–19 km deep, lies the largest known active magma body in Earth’s continental crust.
