Abstract Most of the last glacial maximum (LGM) glacier record west of the southern Andes (40–55° S) is today submerged under the Pacific Ocean and therefore the Archipiélago de Chiloé (42–43° S) provides an unusual opportunity to study local sediment and landform associations to help understand paleoglacial features of the former Patagonian ice sheet (PIS). In this context, this work presents the first comprehensive glacial geomorphologic mapping of the central region of the Archipiélago de… Expand
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
Deglacial ice-marginal glaciolacustrine environments and structural moraine building in Torres del Paine, Chilean southern Patagonia
The late-glacial sedimentologic and geomorphic record of the former Patagonian ice sheet remains mostly unstudied despite the fact that it affords invaluable evidence for glaciologic processes duringExpand
A composite 10Be, IR-50 and 14C chronology of the pre-Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) full ice extent of the western Patagonian Ice Sheet on the Isla de Chiloé, south Chile (42° S)
Abstract. Unanswered questions about the glacier and climate history preceding the global Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) in the southern temperate latitudes remain. The Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 3 isExpand
Stratigraphy and sedimentology of a late Pleistocene incised valley fill: a depositional and paleogeographic model for “Cancagua” deposits in north-western Patagonia, Chile
Late Pleistocene sedimentary deposits outcropping around Valdivia city, locally known as Cancagua, have been subject of contrasting interpretations, from glacial to interglacial sediments. OpposingExpand
The evolution of the Patagonian Ice Sheet from 35 ka to the present day (PATICE)
Abstract We present PATICE, a GIS database of Patagonian glacial geomorphology and recalibrated chronological data. PATICE includes 58,823 landforms and 1,669 geochronological ages, and extends fromExpand
The MIS 3 maximum of the Torres del Paine and Última Esperanza ice lobes in Patagonia and the pacing of southern mountain glaciation
Abstract The timing, structure and termination of the last southern mountain glaciation and its forcing remains unclear. Most studies have focused on the global Last Glacial Maximum (LGM; 26.5–19 ka)Expand
Holocene relative sea-level change along the tectonically active Chilean coast
Abstract We present a comprehensive relative sea-level (RSL) database for north, central, and south-central Chile (18.5°S – 43.6°S) using a consistent, systematic, and internationally comparableExpand
Distributional patterns of living ungulates (Mammalia: Cetartiodactyla and Perissodactyla) of the Neotropical region, the South American transition zone and Andean region
Abstract To recognize the distributional patterns of living ungulates in the Neotropical region, the South American transition zone, and Andean region using the panbiogeographical method of trackExpand
Biodiversity and Geographic Patterns of Neotropical Staphylinidae
The history of the discovery of the Central and South American Staphylinidae fauna is reported beginning with the start of modern taxonomy in the mid of the eighteenth century up to the present. AnExpand


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
Glacial geomorphologic maps of Llanquihue drift in the area of the southern Lake District, Chile
We present four glacial geomorphic maps of Llanquihue drift in the region of the southern Lake District, Seno Reloncavi, and the eastern half of northern Isla Grande de Chiloe, Chile. These maps formExpand
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
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
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
Late Pleistocene Glaciation of the Kosciuszko Massif, Snowy Mountains, Australia
Abstract Late Pleistocene glaciation of the Australian mainland was restricted to a small area of the southeastern highlands. Geomorphic mapping of the area and exposure dating using the in situExpand
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
Expansion of Magellanic Moorland during the late Pleistocene: Palynological evidence from northern Isla de Chiloé, Chile
The late Quaternary vegetation of northern Isla de Chiloe is inferred from palynological analysis of a section in the Rio Negro drainage (42°03′S, 73°50′W). At ca. 30,500 yr B.P., maxima of AsteliaExpand
Mountain Glacier Chronology from Boulder Lake, New Zealand, Indicates MIS 4 and MIS 2 Ice Advances of Similar Extent
Dating of past glaciation in New Zealand allows Quaternary climatic events to be identified in areas at a great distance from northern hemisphere ice sheets and associated climatic feedbacks.Expand
