a r t i c l e i n f o Keywords: erosion landscape evolution specific stream power cosmogenic radionuclides paleoclimate climate-tectonic feedback processes The tectonic and climatic boundary conditions of the broken foreland and the orogen interior of the southern Central Andes of northwestern Argentina cause strong contrasts in elevation, rainfall, and surface-process regimes. The climatic gradient in this region ranges from the wet, windward eastern flanks (~2 m/yr rainfall) to progressively… CONTINUE READING
