History, Previous Works and Physiography

Isla de los Estados (Staaten Island) is located at the southernmost end of South America, forming part of the argentina province of Tierra del Fuego, Antarctica and South Atlantic Islands. The

Diatom assemblage changes in lacustrine sediments from Isla de los Estados, southernmost South America, in response to shifts in the southwesterly wind belt during the last deglaciation

Isla de los Estados (54° 45′S, 63° 10′–64° 46′W) lies east of the main island of Tierra del Fuego and is the southeastern-most point in Argentina. Because of its geographic position near the

Retreat of the Cordillera Darwin icefield during Termination I

During the last glaciation, the Cordillera Darwin icefield expanded northward toward the Straits of Magellan, eastward across Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego and through Canal Beagle, and south and

Interhemispheric linkage of paleoclimate during the last glaciation

Combined glacial geologic and palynologic data from the southern Lake District, Seno Reloncavi, and Isla Grande de Chiloe in middle latitudes (40°35’–42°25’S) of the Southern Hemisphere Andes suggest

The Last Glacial Maximum and deglaciation in southern South America

The last glacial-Holocene transition in southern Chile.

Chronological, sedimentological, and palaeoecological records from sediments of small lakes in oceanic southern Chile demonstrate that there was no Younger Dryas chronozone cooling in southern Chile, suggesting that YDC cooling in the North Atlantic was a regional, rather than global, phenomenon.

Glacial Sedimentary Environments

Until the early 1970s, few sedimentologists had studied glacial deposits in terms of their sedimentary facies, facies associations, and stratigraphy. Glacigenic sediments were mainly analyzed in

Theory of glacial erosion, transport and deposition as a consequence of subglacial sediment deformation

Abstract A theory of erosion, transport and deposition of unlithified sediments by glaciers is presented. It predicts the large-scale areal distribution of zones and rates of erosion and deposition

The Last Glacial Maximum

The responses of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres differed significantly, which reveals how the evolution of specific ice sheets affected sea level and provides insight into how insolation controlled the deglaciation.
