Plio-Quaternary vertical motions and the subduction of the Nazca Ridge
Abstract The coastal region of south-central Peru displays raised marine terraces indicating that, unlike the central Peruvian coast, it underwent a strong uplift since the Late Pliocene. TheseExpand
Coastal neotectonics in Southern Central Andes: uplift and deformation of marine terraces in Northern Chile (27°S)
Abstract Neotectonic observations allow a new interpretation of the recent tectonic behaviour of the outer fore arc in the Caldera area, northern Chile (27°S). Two periods of deformation areExpand
Marine radiocarbon reservoir effect along the northern Chile–southern Peru coast (14–24°S) throughout the Holocene
Abstract Through an extensive sampling and dating of pairs of associated shells and charcoal fragments combined with reanalysis of all the available previous data, we reconstruct the evolutionExpand
Coseismic coastal uplift and coralline algae record in Northern Chile: The 1995 Antofagasta earthquake case
Coralline algae that may be predominant in the upper part of the infralittoral zone along rocky shorelines proved to be a useful indicator of rapid coastal uplift. As these encrusting algae cannotExpand
Quaternary coastal uplift along the Talara Arc (Ecuador, Northern Peru) from new marine terrace data
Marine terrace sequences have been investigated along the Talara Arc, a 1000-km-long stretch of the coast of Ecuador and northern Peru, characterized by subduction with a concave plan-view. SevenExpand
Pampa del Palo: an anomalous composite marine terrace on the uprising coast of southern Peru
Abstract Quaternary sediments along the southern Peruvian coast occur as staircase terraces of coastal and shallow-marine deposits in response to continuous uplift related to the active boundaryExpand
Distribution and enrichment evaluation of heavy metals in Mejillones Bay (23 degrees S), Northern Chile: geochemical and statistical approach.
Although all metals showed high concentrations in the marine sediment of Mejillones Bay, comparison between metal concentration in surface sediments and preindustrial levels in this bay show that present values agree with natural levels. Expand
Stable isotopes and sclerochronology of the bivalve Mesodesma donacium: Potential application to Peruvian paleoceanographic reconstructions
Reconstructing the past ENSO (El Nino Southern Oscillation) interannual variability requires very high resolution sea surface temperature (SST) proxies. In order to compensate for the lack of coralExpand
