Glacial geomorphologic features composed of (or cut into) Llanquihue drift delineate former Andean piedmont glaciers in in the region of the southern Chilean Lake District,Seno Reloncavi, Golfo de Ancud, and northern Golfo Corcovado during the last glaciation. These landforms include extensive moraine belts, main and subsidiary outwash plains, kame terraces, and meltwater spillways. Nt Numerous radiocarbon dates document Andean ice advances into the moraine belts during the last glacial maximum… Expand
Early deglaciation and paleolake history of Río Cisnes Glacier, Patagonian Ice Sheet (44°S)
Abstract The timing, structure, and landscape change during the Patagonian Ice Sheet deglaciation remains unresolved. In this article, we provide a geomorphic, stratigraphic, and geochronologicalExpand
The glacial geomorphology and Pleistocene history of South America between 38°S and 56°S
Abstract This paper presents new mapping of the glacial geomorphology of southern South America between latitudes 38°S and 56°S, approximately the area covered by the former Patagonian Ice Sheets.Expand
Chronology of the last glaciation in central strait of magellan and bahía inútil, southernmost south america
ABSTRACT. Glacier fluctuations in the Strait of Magellan tell of the climatic changes that affected southern latitudes at c. 53–55°S during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) and Late‐glacial/HoloceneExpand
On glaciation of the southern Andes with special reference to the Penı́nsula de Taitao and adjacent Andean cordillera (∼46°30′s)
Abstract Ice fronts in the southern Andes during late Wisconsin–Weichselian glaciation reached maxima early and late in oxygen isotope stage 2. The first maximum occurred between 29,400 and 22,300Expand
The chronology of the last glacial maximum and deglacial events in central Argentine Patagonia
This paper evaluates the chronology of the last glacial cycle and deglaciation in the Lago Pueyrredon valley of central Patagonia, 47.5° S, Argentina. The valley was a major outlet of the formerExpand
Palaeoecological constraints on late Glacial and Holocene ice retreat in the Southern Andes (53°S)
Late Glacial to Holocene ice retreat was investigated along a 120 km long fjord system, reaching from Gran Campo Nevado (GCN) to Seno Skyring in the southernmost Andes (53°S). The aim was to improveExpand
Glacial geomorphology of the Pleistocene Lake Fagnano ice lobe, Tierra del Fuego, southern South America.
Abstract A regional geomorphological study is presented of the southern and eastern coast of Lake Fagnano, one of the most extensive glacial areas of Tierra del Fuego Island, at the southernmost tipExpand
Deglacial and postglacial climate history in east-central Isla Grande De Chiloé, Southern Chile (43°S)
Palynologic and stratigraphic data from Laguna Tahui (42°50′S, 73°30′W) indicate cool–temperate and humid conditions there between 14,000 and 10,000 14C yr B.P., followed by warmer andExpand
Geology, Stratigraphy, and Chronology of the Pilauco Site
The Pilauco site is located in north-western Chilean Patagonia, Region de Los Lagos (40°34′12″S, 73°06′12″W). The stratigraphy of the site comprises of two distinct Pleistocene units. The lower unitExpand
Glacial geomorphology of the Torres del Paine region (southern Patagonia): Implications for glaciation, deglaciation and paleolake history
Abstract The processes affecting paleoclimate variability and Pleistocene glacial landscape development in the southern mid-latitudes remain poorly understood, in part because of the scarcity ofExpand


Vegetation and climate near Lago Llanquihue in the Chilean Lake District between 20200 and 950014C yr BP
Pollen records suggest that mean annual temperature was 6-7°C colder than at present, with twice the modern annual precipitation between 20 200 and 14 000 14 C yr BP, implying a northward shift and intensification of the westerlies storm-tracks. Expand
Pleistocene glaciation in the southern Lake District of Chile
Relative-age criteria permit deposits of successive Andean glacier advances in the southern Lake District of Chile to be divided into four mappable drift sheets, the oldest two of which overlieExpand
Interhemispheric Correlation of Late Pleistocene Glacial Events
The last termination began suddenly and simultaneously in both polar hemispheres before the resumption of the modern mode of deep-water production in the Nordic Seas and interhemispheric coupling implies a global atmospheric signal rather than regional climatic changes caused by North Atlantic thermohaline switches or Laurentide ice surges.

Relative and radiocarbon chronology of two former glaciers in the Chilean Lake District
This paper investigates the relative importance of climatic and topographic factors on the fluctuations of two adjacent palaeoglaciers in the Chilean Lake District. Geomorphological mapping of theExpand
Interhemispheric linkage of paleoclimate during the last glaciation
