'We beg God for water': Chilean lake turns to desert, sounding climate change alarm

Horses rest on the site of the dried-up Aculeo lagoon at Paine in Santiago, Chile. "Now there is no water, it is a desert here," said local campsite manager Francisco Martinez. "The animals are dying and there is nothing to do here in the lagoon any more."  REUTERS/Ivan Alvarado

A general view of the almost-dry Penuelas lake in Valparaiso, Chile. Amid an historic 13-year drought, rainfall levels have slumped in this South American nation that hugs the continent's Pacific coast. Higher air temperatures have meant snow in the Andes, once a key store of meltwater for spring and summer, is not compacting, melts faster, or turns straight to vapor.

Cattle ranchers ride horses at Farellones, close to the Andes mountain range, in Santiago, Chile. Normally, low-pressure storms from the Pacific unload precipitation over Chile in winter, recharging aquifers and packing the Andes mountains with snow. But naturally occurring warming of the sea off Chile's coast, which blocks storms from arriving, has been intensified by rising global sea temperature, according to a global study on sea temperature and rainfall deficits.

A sign reading 'zona de pesca' (fishing area) hangs next to a pier structure at the former Aculeo lagoon at Paine in Santiago, Chile. Analysis of tree rings going back 400 years shows how rare the current drought is, said Duncan Christie, a researcher at the Center for Climate and Resilience in Chile. It is totally unrivalled for duration or intensity. He said that meant the Andes - which he called the country's "water towers" - were not getting a chance to replenish, which in turn meant that as snow melted in spring there was far less water to fill rivers, reservoirs and aquifers.
