Passive-sampler derived air concentrations of persistent organic pollutants on a north-south transect in Chile.
Passive air samplers consisting of polyurethane foam (PUF) disks, were deployed in six locations in Chile along a north-south transect to investigate gas-phase concentrations of polychlorinatedExpand

Evaluation of Water Quality in the Chillán River (Central Chile) Using Physicochemical Parameters and a Modified Water Quality Index
The Chillán River in Central Chile plays a fundamental role in local society, as a source of irrigation and drinking water, and as a sink for urban wastewater. In order to characterize the spatialExpand

Multiple effects of urbanization on the biodiversity of developing countries: the case of a fast-growing metropolitan area (Concepción, Chile).
Urbanization is increasingly homogenizing the biota of less developed countries. Even though urban sprawl is a worldwide problem, most studies on the effects of urbanization, and the conceptualExpand

Early to Mid-Holocene Aridity in Central Chile and the Southern Westerlies: The Laguna Aculeo Record (34°S)
Abstract Central Chile (32–35°S) lies at the northern border of strong Westerly influence and thus exhibits a steep precipitation gradient. Therefore, the palaeoclimatic archives in the region areExpand

Giant earthquakes in South-Central Chile revealed by Holocene mass-wasting events in Lake Puyehue
Abstract Very high resolution reflection seismic profiling (3.5 kHz) revealed nine Holocene mass-wasting events in Lake Puyehue (South-Central Chile). These events are made up of numerous coevalExpand

Widespread deformation of basin-plain sediments in Aysén fjord (Chile) due to impact by earthquake-triggered, onshore-generated mass movements
Abstract The 2007 M w 6.2 earthquake in Aysen fjord caused widespread basin-plain deformation and has had prehistorical predecessors. Both superficial and buried deformed basin-plain deposits areExpand
