The giant paleolandslide deposits of Tafí del Valle, Tucumán Province, Argentina

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In this study, 7 landslide deposits that took place during the Pleistocene, in the northern part of Tafi del Valle, are described. The recognition and mapping of them were carried out using satellite images, aerial photograph interpretation, and field survey. These deposits could have originated as a consequence of a combination of internal slow deformation and fragmentation, under periglacial conditions, followed by a sudden collapse of the rock mass generated by stong earthquakes of magnitude >6 at the base of the Cumbres Calchaquies Ranges
