Abstract

The AA. examine the deglaciation of the eastern flank of the North Patagonia Icefield between latitudes 46° and 48°S in an attempt to link the chronology of the Last Glacial Maximum moraines and those close to present-day outlet glaciers. The main features of the area are 3 shorelines created by ice-dammed lakes that drained eastwards to the Atlantic. The chronological implication is that late-glacial changes in southern Patagonia were under the influence of the Antarctic realm and out of phase with those of the northern hemisphere
