Abstract: Glacier Horcones Inferior is a covered glacier, and a typical example of Andean mountain glaciers. Its study will allow us to understand glaciers’ dynamics through the Holocenic, by analysing its movement back and forth, as well as the geomorphological marks of that movement. Glaciers in the valley of Horcones Inferior have a typology quite different from most of the well-known glaciers, with a predominance of covered and rocky glaciers, and others. Its investigation will, therefore, allow us to understand glacial dynamics in the Andes, which may help us understand glacial dynamics on a global context. So far, our characterization of the dynamics rests on a detailed geomorphological study of the valley.
