Abstract

The AA. report the results of glacial geomorphological mapping of the Strait of Magellan and Bahía Inútil. The aims are to determine the pattern and process of deglaciation during the last glacial-interglacial transition and to provide a firm geomorphological basis for the interpretation of radiocarbon, cosmogenic isotope and amino acid dates for the timing of deglaciation. The mapping shows that it is possible to make a clear weathering and morphological distinction between last glaciation and older landforms and sediments. The AA. conclude that there are 4 main readvances or stillstands that marked the transition from the Last Glacial Maximum to the onset of the Holocene
