The Fuegian Andes form a principal component of the Scotia Arc (Fig. 1), whose widely debated tectonic history has implications for several geological phenomena associated with opening of Drake Passage (Lawver and Gahagan, 2003; Eagles et al., 2005; Livermore et al., 2005, 2007), including ocean circulation and polar glaciation (Kennett, 1977; Barker and Thomas, 2004) and the interchange of fauna between Gondwanan continents (Regüero et al., 2002; Evans et al., 2008). One remarkable aspect of… CONTINUE READING
