Atlas and book production

Los ríos de la zona árida peruana (2013)

In November 2013, the University of Piura (Peru) and the ICC published the book "Los ríos de la zona árida peruana", by Gonzalo de Reparaz. This is the edition of the research work that Reparaz completed in 1966. This work has been the result of the request made by the University of Peru to the ICC. Gonzalo de Reparaz (Sèvres 1901 - Lima 1984) was a great connoisseur of the dryness problems of Peru. He conceived and created the Instituto de la Zona Árida Peruana, with the funding of UNESCO, in agreement with the government of Peru. He was passionate about the Peruvian water system and systematically studied the rivers of the Pacific watershed. He traveled through all the basins and, as a result of his theoretical knowledge and field work, described, photographed and mapped each basin in detail, compiling data between 1911 and 1965. The most well-known aspect so far of this period was, without a doubt, the discovery of the Colca Canyon, in 1955, one of the deepest on Earth. This finding must be contextualized, precisely, as an integral part of this brilliant work carried out by Professor Reparaz. The book is accompanied by a series of tables, graphs and maps that Reparaz prepared for the study of rivers.
