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)

Markgraf, Vera; Whitlock, Cathy; Haberle, Simon


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]
