Vegetation and fire history during the last 18,000 cal yr B.P. in Southern Patagonia: Mallin Pollux, Coyhaique, Province Aisen (45°4130"S, 71°50'30" W, 640 m elevation)
To better understand the climate, vegetation and fire history of southern South America since the last deglaciation, sediment characteristics, diatoms, pollen, microscopic and macroscopic charcoal and magnetic susceptibility were analyzed in a 14-m long sediment core from a closed basin fen at Lago Pollux, Aisén Province, southern Chile (45°41′30″ S lat, 71°50′30″ W long, 640 m elev.). Sediment characteristics, absence of diatoms and scarce pollen suggest that before 18,000 cal yr BP, glacier...[Show more]
