Abstract

Along the nival-arid axis an association of glacial landforms is described pointing to an important glaciation in Southern Peru. Plate 8, a detailed generalized reduction, was compiled from geological and topographical 1 : 100,000 maps, offering a comparative overview of the entire area and promoting an integrative map interpretation. Of the topographical maps, figure 4 shows most impressively a terminal moraine at an elevation of 2,800 m a. s. l. Peruvian geological commentaries on the area explicitly mention a Pleistocene age for the large alluvial sheets, following significant deglaciation processes. Here the author shows that these alluvial complexes generally overlie the pediments, often with steep scarps against the general direction of slope, or even separated from the upward slope by basins. - (l'Ed.)
